Gennaro Contaldo, said:
I’m delighted to be back in Harrogate opening the Ice Cream and Artisan Food Show. The passion that artisan ice cream makers have matches my own passion for good food.
I know Harrogate very well – I used to come here twice a month because I had a restaurant here.
It is a beautiful town in a lovely part of the world.
