What you'll do

We will make gelato from scratch. Through traditional Italian recipes, using only the best, artisanal and organic ingredients we will make gelato, such as stracciatella (my favorite), vanilla, or strawberry or peach, depending on the season and availability. We can also make vegan gelato using coconut milk (best option) - chocolate coconut is the best. This experience is as much hand-on or hands-off as you feel comfortable with. Perfect activity to do with your kids - and a treat for me to work with them! While waiting for the gelato to churn into a perfect creamy delicious delightfulness we will traverse the terrain of ice cream vs gelato while sipping tea, coffee or some complimentary wine. We will talk about gelato, Italy and contemporary art. Being a curator and a gallerist for more than a decade I have amassed a small art collection of both modern and contemporary art and am happy to share my knowledge. The groups are small (max 4/5 people) - in case your family or group is larger I can accommodate you as well, just send me a message.

Paula

I am a New York transplant to Rome, with many ties to the Italian culture through my own great-grandparents and my partner's immediate family. Being a director (at-large) of a NYC gallery, I work with cutting edge art every day. As much as I love art I also love gelato. And who doesn't? Going back to my roots I first learned the craft from my partner's nonna 15 years ago. Living in Rome has taught me many nuances about Italy, which might be surprising to foreigners, but normal to locals. I would love to share everything I know with you in a fun afternoon making a fresh homemade organic gelato.
