Wanna get fruity at The Gelato Ice Cream Festival?
What’s cold, sweet and sets your taste buds a-tingling with rapture? The Gelato Ice Cream Festival of course, and this summer the frozen fruity foodie heaven is winging its way to a city near you!
If you’re not familiar with this frozen fancy, Italian Gelato was invented in 1559 when Florentine artist Bernardo Buontalenti’s cold milk, honey and egg yolk dessert whipped up a frenzy at the Medici court. Skip forward almost 500 years and fellow Florence-based Gabriele Poli’s festival to celebrate artisanal gelato has gone global.
And that means a fleet of festival food trucks awaits you, offering a flotilla of your favourite fruity, frozen flavours for you to fall in love with… just beware of brain-freeze!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream
