For Christmas, I bought my friend and I a class to learn how to make Gelato. We went this past Sunday and had a blast!
We headed to Mia Chef Gelateria in NYC.
First the Chef explains about the differences between Ice Cream and Gelato and gives some history behind the two different desserts. He then reviewed how we would make the base for the 4 different flavors that we would be making: Cookies & Cream, Dutch Chocolate, French Vanilla, and Snickers.
We began my measuring out the wet ingredients then the dry ingredients using a food scale. You need to be precise.
You go through the process of making the four flavors and watch the gelato made in the gelato machine.
After each flavor is made you get to sample a taste. Yum!
Then you wait for them to give you your take home goody bag of gelato! Be sure to pack some ice packs and portable coolers.
We had so much fun!
When you get home keep the gelato in the freezer for about a half hour before serving.
Top to bottom: Snickers, French Vanilla, Dutch Chocolate, Cookies & Cream
Be sure to have a big heaping bowl of each flavor to sample your hard work!!
I would 100% recommend taking this gelato class. I got a deal for it on Groupon, so if you are in the NYC area check it out! Fun to do with a friend or for a date night!
