What you'll do

We will begin with a tour of the gelato laboratory and production machines. I will explain where we source our produce and the importance of using seasonal, local, second-run fruit from the local farmers and suppliers we work with. I will identify the difference between gelato and ice cream, and why gelato is a better vehicle for flavour. After touring the facilities we will have a 16-flavour gelato tasting, to include either the stranger and more bizarre, or the more traditional flavours we typically make (your choice!). We will discuss where the inspiration comes from and the different collaborations and custom flavours that we've made over the years, including the hits and the failures, the award winners, the flavours that got us in trouble. The tour will conclude with a double scoop of your choice in a waffle cone. Try Brie-Pear-Walnut, Garlic-Fennel-Vanilla, Smoked Chocolate and Bourbon, White-Chocolate-Almond-Sesame, While Truffle-Maple-Sage, Strawberry-Thai Basil-Juniper, Blueberry-Lavender-Lemonade, Grilled Cheese, Chocolate-Bugs, Corn-on-the-Cob, Pigs Blood, Pistachio-Baklava, Hay-Honey-Caramel, Peach-Basil-Bellini, Boozy Tiramisu, Pad Thai and more.
