Time: 10.00

Culinary Club


Move over Mr Whippy……let the true Gelato kings do their stuff.

Join us for a day of Gelato Culture at the UK branch of Gelato University Carpigiani. Carpigiani was founded in 1946 by the brothers Bruto and Poerio Carlo Carpigiani, after the success of the first automatic gelato machine, the Autogelatiera, in 1944.

Carpigiani Gelato University founded in 2003 and mission is to lay the basis for a world-wide gelato culture. Ice cream is not just one product. It provides a platform for making a huge variety of natural foods, with different ingredients and flavorings, depending on people’s tastes.

Whether you are already producing ice cream and are looking for new ideas, methods, techniques or ingredients or whether you are just curious about opening a gelato parlour or turning part of your business into this activity or simply creating a new menu offering, this culinary club will be very helpful in answering your questions whilst providng superior technical training.

Gelato Fact! Gelato and ice cream are NOT the same thing. Carpigiani Gelato University teaches how to make true Italian gelato, not ice cream. Gelato is less fat than ice cream, contains less air, and is served at a higher temperature; Consequently gelato has a richer flavour than ice cream.

Carpigiani Gelato University Park Royal London Unit A, Premier Park Abbey Road Park Royal London NW10 7NZ 29th July 2020 @ 10am.

Nearest Tube Stonebridge Park (Bakerloo Line).
