A Journey Through the History and Culture of Italian Gelato

Our gelato workshop begins with a captivating introduction to the history of gelato and its significance in Italian culture. Discover how this frozen dessert has evolved over the years and explore the various ingredients and techniques used in its production.

The origins of gelato can be traced back to ancient Rome and Persia. Roman emperors would send their servants to the mountains to collect snow, which was then mixed with fruit and honey to create a refreshing dessert. In Persia, a similar treat known as “shrb” was made by combining snow with grape juice or other fruit juices.

Gelato Workshop in Rome

Gelato’s modern form owes much to the ingenuity of the Italian Renaissance. It was during this time that the great artist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci began experimenting with frozen desserts. The true “father of gelato” however, is Bernardino Procopio, who opened the first gelateria in Paris in 1686, introducing the French to this delightful Italian creation.

As Italian nobility and diplomats traveled throughout Europe, they brought their love for gelato with them. In the 18th and 19th centuries, gelato became increasingly popular, with gelaterias opening in cities across the continent.
