There’s a new gelato in the freezer aisle that will take you on a global tour of flavors. Culinary Tours Gelato is creamy, delicious and inspired by flavors from Italy, Tahiti, Ecuador, the Mediterranean and American South.
While gelato itself, originated in Italy, It’s popularity, in recent years, has reached around the world. What makes it different from regular ice cream is a dense texture that can be attributed to the speed at which the ingredients are churned. Less air is incorporated into gelato so the texture is silky and soft. It also contains less sugar and no cream, which makes the flavor of the additives more prominent. The vanilla tastes stronger, fruit flavors stand out and chocolate is extra rich.
Now that the heat of summer is here, there’s no excuse for not trying every delicious flavor of Culinary Tours. Here’s a rundown to tempt your taste buds.
Tahitian Vanilla Bean: Hand-pollinated vanilla plants lounge under the Tahitian sun for flavor supreme. Expect intense vanilla flavor!
