The story of the best Ice Cream

Crème de la Crème translates to cream of the cream - the best of the best. What we preach, we deliver. What we sell, we make, and we stand by it. All the recipes for Italian artisan ice creams are written by Honza Hochsteiger aka "Mr. Ice Cream", who has worked for many years in Italy and other parts of the world for the best Italian ice cream makers and now lovingly invents and makes the best ice creams for you too.

Master ice cream maker Honza Hochsteiger,

born in 1980 in Prague, has been making ice cream since 2002. For a long time he worked for important Italian ice cream makers who ran Cream & Dream and Cremeria Milano in Prague. For more than four years he worked and lived in Italy in Trento, where he gained experience to open his own business. In April 2015, he opened Crème de la Crème, an Italian artisan ice cream parlour at 12 Husova Street in the centre of Prague and established direct cooperation with the chefs of Ambiente restaurants, with whom he creatively develops recipes for special and unusual ice creams for their menus. He credits both his technical background and his experience at the Carpigiani Gelato University in Bologna, Italy, for getting the recipes right.

Honza Hochsteiger is an enthusiastic expert on the entire history of ice cream production, studying the original artisanal historical production methods and their application in modern gastronomy. He is a vocal advocate of making ice cream from basic ingredients without the use of so-called bases - white ice cream mass, which is only flavoured with individual ice cream flavours during production. In addition to many satisfied customers, his work has also been appreciated by visitors to the Prague Ice Cream Festival, where he was awarded the title of Golden Ice Cream Maker of the Festival for the third time. In 2018, he moved his ice cream and cake production from the centre of Prague to new large premises in Prague's Strašnice and opened the Ice Cream Parlour on Národní třída - a classy place with the widest range of artisan quality ice creams in the country.
