Growing up in Italy where she spent summers at her parents' gelateria, Paola knows there's nothing quite like a cool treat made from scratch. As summer temps climb, skip the ice cream shop line and learn how to make your own creamy Gelato alla Crema (vanilla custard gelato) topped with Fragole al Balsamico (strawberry and balsamic fruit salad) using the freshest local, seasonal ingredients. Paola will also demonstrate how to craft Affogato al Caffé a refreshing coffee gelato float topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings!
This class uses an ice cream maker. Dietary notes: Vegetarian with dairy and eggs; no gluten.
About the instructor: Paola grew up in Milan in a family devoted to making good food her parents owned a gelato store for 20 years. She spent most of her life in the kitchen cooking with mama and nonna first, and later with her children. When she moved to Seattle, she started matching local ingredients with regional Italian cooking. She travels to Italy every year and visits restaurants and trattorias looking for inspiration.
