Zuppa Inglese Gelato
December 19, 2015 by Gelazzi in News 0 Comments

This particular gelato is made just like the custard based dessert except that it’s frozen. The name Zuppa Inglese is Italian for English soup. As a dessert, its layered custard and sponge cake with chocolate drizzled over powdered sugar and whipped cream on top. There are several versions of Zuppa Inglese depending on where you hail from, who you talk to and where you get your recipe. All of that aside, we have made our own version Zuppa Inglese as a gelato with a custard base, finely chunked sponge cake, and we’ve folded in some chocolate stracciatella style. We also added a red berry mixture that’s been soaked in sugar and white wine. Some customers have said it’s pretty delicious but try it for yourself to decide if it’s the best Zuppa Inglese gelato you’ve ever had.

Rum Raisin Gelato
November 17, 2015 by Gelazzi in News 0 Comments

A customer from the Netherlands requested Malaga gelato, so we decided to make it. In Italy and Europe rum raisin gelato is known as Malaga. Malaga gelato gets its name from Malaga raisins which come from dried Muscat grapes. These raisins have a high amount of natural sugar and are good on their own. Add some rum into the mix along with a custardy gelato base and it’s all good. To make Malaga, we had to get the right raisins. Then soaked them in some dark rum overnight added them into our top secret custard gelato base. We think the flavor is just amazing but you’ll have to taste for yourself.

Lemon Gelato

Just like our lemon sorbetto we use fresh lemons and zest in our gelati limone. The difference in the ingredients is of course the dairy, but the difference in taste is something you need to try. The dairy changes the flavor significantly. It makes it rich and less tart for having so many lemons but is just as refreshing. Visit Gelazzi for a taste of our gelati limone and you’ll be glad you did.
