enjoy the sweet escape

Summer is coming. Get ready for the heat waves and brilliant rays of the blazing sun. But do not worry, because there is this special dessert called G E L A T O that is ready to bring joy and winter breeze to your hot summer days!

Made with milk, cream, and sugar, gelato is basically an ice cream made in the Italian style. However, there are several differences between gelato and ice cream. It is generally lower in fat, contains less air and more flavoring that gives gelato a density and richness like no other ice cream.

Gelato can be served in cup, cone, sandwich, cake, pie, or even on a stick.

People crave for different flavors, but there are some flavors that most people like and remain popular through the decades even centuries. The traditional flavors of gelato consist vanilla, chocolate, hazelnut, pistachio, tiramisu, custard (cream), and stracciatella (vanilla gelato with crunchy chocolate pieces on top or throughout the gelato).

“So... Italian gelato. Take the deliciousness of a regular ice cream cone, times it by a million, then sprinkle it with crushed-up unicorn horns.”

    In Italy I’ve never heard anybody distinguish between ice cream and gelato! We only make a distinction between the industrial gelato/ice cream you can buy at supermarket and the artisanal one produced in the shops (gelaterie)😂
