14 Jun Carpigiani Gelato University: The Art of Making Gelato
Italy’s best gelato is known worldwide and carefully crafted by experienced gelato chefs, educated only by the top instructors in the gelato industry! Carpigiani Gelato University, located in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy, churns out award winning gelato-makers from Canada to Israel and a few places in between. Future gelatiers from all over the world can spend anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks studying the science and art of gelato-making, perfecting their craft under the guidance of Italy’s top gelato chefs and instructors. Many of CGU’s students return to their country with the intention of opening an artisan gelato shop and sharing their love of this treasured Italian treat.
I had the sweet treat of spending a day in class last month at the gelato university in Bologna, observing the students in practice and sampling more than a dozen types of artisan gelato made fresh that day! Read on for a glimpse into what it is like to be a student at the famous Carpigiani Gelato University!
