Frugii has been asked to stock the Food Lovers Company in Belconnen with our range of Ice Cream, Gelato, and Sorbets! Stay Tuned!
Frugii was invited to Canberra's 100th Birthday celebrations last week. Our Frugii Marquee was inundated with happy customers from 10:30am right throughto 10pm - makeing it a very sucessfull day for all! Our on-site backup freezers performed perfectly which enabled us to have Ice Cream, Gelato and Sorbet all day, and night! Frugii would like to extend a big thank you to everyone that queued up for our produce on such a beautiful day.
Frugii are very pleased to announce that we have been asked to supply the IGA Deakin store with a range of Ice Cream, Gelato and Sorbets.
We delivered our first six flavours today, 20th February 2013. So, if you are ‘in need’ you now have somewhere else to get your ‘Frugii Fix’. Flavours delivered were Vanilla Ice Cream, Dark Chocolate Gelato, Juniper Berry Ice Cream, Wattleseed Ice Cream, Pear Sorbet, and Blood Plum Sorbet!
Frugii is now at the Capital Regional Farmers Markets every Saturday and the Old Bus Depot Markets every Sunday. Our next big event f is the Canberra Day festivities on the 11th March 2013.

What have we been up to?
We got hold of some exquisite Black Pudding from www.pacdon.com.au it arrived in a beautiful container, right from the airport. We promptly turned in into some Black Pudding Ice Cream, and although it’s not my normal ‘thing’ I used colour to turn the Ice Cream a Dark Charcoal colour – using squid ink. I am typically adverse to using colour, however when you serve someone ‘blood’ Ice Cream – and its baby poo’ brown – it’s not quite that inviting (-; The Ice Cream tasted divine! No – it’s not to everyone’s liking – but you have to push boundaries sometime to get people out of their comfort zone.
My next Ice Cream to try and make was a Blood and Chocolate from a beautiful website by Emiko Davies http://www.emikodavies.com/blog/blood-chocolate-sanguinaccio/ Basically I used the Black Pudding, my very own Chocolate that I make from cocoa beans that I import, and some candied peel. Again, what a beautiful dessert!! This is a very old dessert from Italy – unfortunately not that know.
I have been so lucky to be invited to meet Ginger for her program – a Sunday brunch with Ginger Gorman and discuss some of my more crazy flavours like Blue Cheese, Roast Potato and the like!
Yes – the new Frugii Website is still coming soon
Apologies for the delay with our new website – I am trying to get some pictures of my products together, but we are getting so, so many orders from existing, and new clients – we are struggling to find time to get the pictures done!
Just a reminder that our twitter account @MrFrugii is being well received. We now have quite a few followers, and found that this is a great way to stay up-to-date with what our current flavour of the month is!
As most of you are aware, frugii now makes a substantial amount of their own chocolate – from the actual cocoa bean. This month we are producing chocolate from Guatemala – it’s a Trinitario bean that’s proving to be quite successful with our clients!
Flavour(s) of the Month
The next few weeks will be candy weeks!! Yes, I am candying not only the ‘normal’ yummy oranges, but also Blood Oranges, Lemons, Limes, and a very promising batch of Ruby Red Grapefruit!
I am just waiting for some Black Pudding to me made for me – and yes – this will end up in an Italian Classic gelato! Stay tuned!!
