SLOW FOOD WORKSHOP: Local and Global Gelato

Gelato Village is an internationally recognised gelateria committed to using the finest quality ingredients. They pride themselves on producing gelati which are 'good, clean and fair' using produce local to their base in Leicestershire.

Join Daniele Taverna and Antonio de Vecchi as they guide you through the secrets of artisan Italian gelato making. They will explain the difference between gelato and ice cream, give you an insight into the traditional Italian Mantecazione process and, of course, give you the chance to try a variety of gelati from their award winning range. How do you fancy a 'milk and honey' spoonful, or one made with Shropshire Prune damsons?
