Maybe one day you will find something that will not be there a week later. You must not despair because Mara dei Boschi is able to offer new intriguing tastes always with the same philosophy: research, passion and quality.
For example, in the summer you can find the taste from which this ice cream takes its name, created with the Mara de Bois wild strawberries that grow beyond the Alps. While in winter you can enjoy a delicious pomegranate sorbet.
But of course, like any artisan ice cream shop worthy of the name, it has a series of permanent tastes that are a must for anyone who frequents it. A classic, the Marotto, the giandujotto ice cream prepared according to the old recipe but without milk, nor eggs nor cream to enhance even more the taste of hazelnut of the Langhe,perfectly paired with the white truffle of Alba.
In addition to the classic cones and cups, Mara dei Boschi offers different solutions to enjoy all the goodness of their products: from ice cream jars to aromatic herbs, passing through cakes to culinary ice-cream. The latter has guaranteed to Mara dei Boschi many collaborations including the one with the starred restaurant Magorabin.

If you are undecided on which flavors to combine, the staff is well equipped to advise you on the best recipes for the perfect dinner!
