Written for home cooks, gelato enthusiasts, caterers, chefs, and restauranteurs, this beautifully illustrated and definitive artisan gelato guide provides everything you need to get started, including:

  • 228 full-color pages of valuable artisan gelato-making expertise.
  • More than 75 balanced and tested gelato formulas that will withstand scrutiny by any gelato professional in Italy.
  • The process for creating and balancing gelato formulas using the Italian method.
  • The basic science needed to go even further creatively with perfect gelato.
  • Guidance for both small-scale and commercial large-scale artisan gelato production.

    About the Author

    Gary J. Mihalik started making gelato several decades ago, refining his skills while studying in the Masters course at the Istituto Culinario Italiano in Italy. He returned to the Institute a number of times and assisted in teaching courses, primary among them was the week-long gelato course. He also spent a week working side-by-side with Mirko Tognetti, the owner and geletiere of Cremeria Opera in Lucca, and a founding member of Compagnia Gelatieri: Narratori di Gelato (Association of Gelato Makers: Narrators of Gelato), a group dedicated to furthering artisan Italian gelato. In 2015, two years after opening, Cremeria Opera was rated as one of the top gelato shops in Italy by Gambero Rosso magazine.
