Just So Cool

Updated: 04 Apr 2012 | By:

Gelato is like espresso – a favourite Italian pastime! Such is the devotion to this icy treat that it is eaten even in cold weather. In fact, in southern Italy, it can even be eaten for breakfast, served in brioche with an espresso on the side, of course.

Generally thought to originate from Sicily, gelato is much denser and richer than ice cream, as it is less aerated, and much more intense in flavour. And because it’s not as solidly frozen, it has a smoother, creamier texture. It’s lower in fat as it’s made with milk or water – that’s about 2% to 8% fat to ice cream’s 20%.

If you want to get a gelato machine, the obvious choice would be an Italian model – who would know gelato better? Check out these Nemox machines, made by the manufacturer of household and kitchen appliances, which specializes in cold accumulating and compressor machines like gelato and ice cream makers.
