Giardino Gelato's Bloggers Night*
|Commissary & Test Kitchen|
Exactly what's creamier compared to ice cream, however, with much less fat ingredients? Just what's a fantastic means to delight in the fruits of the season? Just what's as Italian as Tiramisu yet with much less compared to fifty percents as lots of calories? If you have Gelato on your thoughts, you will certainly agree that Gelato has now started to change ice cream as a preferred dessert treat for youngsters and grownups alike.
When Davao Bloggers got invited by Giardino Gelato's tasting last December 18 at their commissary in the lower ground of Abreeza Mall Davao, we experience first hand how to make a gelato fresh from its Carpigiani machine.
The host of the evening Ms. Tess Songco,the President and Head of the Production Team demonstrate to everyone how they make their gelato.

We took a peek inside their commissary and test kitchen to check how the mixture is made in the Carpigiani machine.
After 10 minutes of waiting, Carpigiani machine begins to stirring gelato base plus ingredients in negative 2 degrees churning temperature then into a tub of gelato. Getting some rest for awhile to enhance the flavor.
By then we started to line up to have a taste of the freshly made Stracciatella gelato right from the Carpigiani machine.
We also watch how theMango sorbet was made straight from the carpigiani. I even discovered a tip from Ms. Tess to use glass in scooping the mango.

Finally, we got to taste some of their exclusive and unreleased flavors.
I'll rank them based on my top favorites.
- Reese's nutrageous
Reese's taken to the maximum level. A mixture of whole nuts, caramel, chocolate and Reese's all-time favorite peanut butter. Who could not resist that gelato flavor?(MUST TRY!)
An original Japanese favorite concocted for SumoSam. I feel in love with this flavor. (MUST TRY!)
- Rhum Raisin
Italians call this Malaga. It's a gelato that's made for adults with a distinctive taste of Rhum.(MUST TRY!)
One of the 4 cocktails specially concocted for Gelato (Greenbelt 3, Makati). Apple sorbet with a touch of vodka.(MUST TRY!)
Flavored with Davao's superstar fruit
