The latest opening at Sydney’s Barangaroo is RivaReno Gelato, launching at the Wulugul Pop Up and offering authentic Italian artisan gelato.
RivaReno will sell gelato sticks and granita, made using authentic Italian methods and from natural ingredients including raw Alpine milk from Cuneo. The gelato contains no hydrogenated fat, preservatives, antioxidants or artificial colouring and is made on-site daily in small batches.
Wulugul Pop Up visitors will be able to choose between Fior Di Panna (pure milk and cream flavour with a touch of Madagascan ‘bourbon’ vanilla); Cioccolato Fondente (dark chocolate made from red African cocoa beans); Cocco (coconut made using Sri Lankan milk and slivers of coconut); Caramello Salato (salted caramel with pink Himalayan salt) – all dipped in chocolate and served ready to eat on sticks.
“At Wulugul Pop Up we are paying homage to the paddlepop with all our amazing gelato on sticks, individually hand made and dipped, which we know our customers will love,” said Kieran Tosolini, founder of RivaReno Gelato.
A range of Sicilian granitas will also be on offer, made only with fruit, sugar and water.
RivaReno Gelato joins a group of operators at Wulugul Pop Up for the nine month residency, including Mamak, Gin & It, Belle’s Hot Chicken and Edition Coffee Roasters. Teamed with a mix of events throughout the year including a General Thinking series of talks and debates; festivals curated by Joanna Savill; and a communal native garden, Wulugul Pop Up is an 'entre to the experiences that The Streets of Barangaroo will offer in the coming years', said Gary Horwitz, head of retail at Lendlease.
“The food and beverage operators within Wulugul Pop Up are a fantastic showcase of young talent; delivering quality food in a simple, honest and street-food inspired way … There’s no doubt RivaReno will whet the appetites of Sydneysiders in the months ahead, before they unveil their permanent presence on the adjoining Barangaroo Avenue.”
