Flavour: The Italian Immigrant

The Gelatissimo story began with Franco Lopresti, a southern Italian who migrated to Australia in the 1950s who, like so many immigrants at the time, arrived with nothing but raw ambition and a willingness to work hard in order to build a better life. The hardworking Italian immigrants who brought with them so many beautiful tastes to Australia, and the wonderful Australian flavours they discovered when they arrived – The fusion of these great cultures in this Inspiration behind this flavour.

Flavour: White Peach

Nothing signals that summer is just around the corner more than the first blush of juicy white peaches. It\\\’s an exciting time in our gelato lab as trays of just picked ripe peaches send their delicious, distinctive and heady perfumed aroma through our kitchen. The perfect ripeness of the peach is paramount in transforming this delicious fruit into an outstanding gelato. The purity of flavour is what drives and determines the recipe. The flavour must have all the delicateness and subtleness of the best and freshest white peaches but still be very persistant and overwhelmimgly true to flavour and leave no doubt to which flavour gelato you are enjoying, even with your eyes closed. The degree of sweetness should not exceed the fruit in it\\\’s natural state and the the texture, although colder, should be absolutely reminiscent of the delightful fleshy but firm fruit.
