Gladsome Goodness in a Scoop


A desire to expand your summertime horizons needs to be met by trying the Italian version of the ice-cream – The Gelato. Literally, Thank God for Gelato! For it is lower in fat content as compared to the conventional ice-creams, denser and creamier and makes for a delectable dessert. This calls for satiating your ice cream impulse with some delicious and artisanal Gelato.

When it comes to the different flavours, be sure to be spoiled for choice. Thankfully, you don’t have to travel all the way to Italy each time you crave a scoop. Besides the more common flavours, you can even churn out the most divine and exotic varieties at home with proper know-how. Feeling adventurous? Prep up your cooking equipment to create delightful Nectarine Rose Gelato or give a fresh twist by trying your hands on flavours like a Passionfruit Cheesecake Gelato, Sesame Gelato or the exclusive Tim Tam Biscuit Gelato, which is creating quite a pull.

Fancy a Gelato over breakfast? How about dishing up a top-notch Cereal flavoured Gelato.  A Yoghurt Gelato with granola and fruit compote could be a fun idea to try.  Just perfect for health aficionados! Another suggestion would be blending pancakes and Canadian maple syrup for an indulgent gelato. Feeling experimental?  Then there is the Green Tea Gelato and Spaghetti Gelato, which are considered as innovative as it is delicious.

However, amidst all the experimentation, we must be careful to gauge the flavour and intensity of the Gelato so as not to create some outrageous mishmash of it. Understanding the base of the Gelato, the freezing techniques and the fundamentals of recipe development and equipment is of prime importance. ICCA Dubai delivers the complete Gelato curriculum accredited by the Carpigiani Gelato University, Italy. Opt for the freshest and most organic ingredients for your Gelato and assured that with practice coupled with the knowledge gained, you will step up your Gelato game!
