Simple, Fresh and Delicious Recipes Inspired By My Seasonal Garden

The Gelato Experience

The Gelato Experience

The Gelato Experience at The Delectable Garden. Join me in my kitchen for a deliciously interactive day of authentic Italian gelato making and tasting.

Gelato Love

Gelato is an incredibly creamy Italian frozen dessert. Compared to traditional ice cream, gelato, has a thick and silky texture that carries a more intense flavour. Delighting your tastebuds scoop after scoop. Gelato is surprisingly easy to make at home using everyday ingredients. You can create an array of flavours, fruit, nut, chocolate, caramel, yogurt, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination. Oh, and did I mention it’s generally lower in calories, fat, and sugar?!?

The Experience

You will learn how to make the most incredible gelato. The 4.5 hour day will start by making my secret gelato custard recipe, the base for many of my gelato flavours. A gelato style afternoon tea will give you the chance to sample some of The Delectable Garden’s finest seasonal gelato. The day will end with the churning of your very own gelato to take home. We will also create sauces to pimp up your gelato. You will receive a recipe pack to feed your new gelato addiction!
