At the beginning of the year, some members of the Iorio’s team ventured to Miami, Florida for a three day intense gelato lab training. We spent several days improving our craft, learning new recipes, and testing out new ingredients for our gelato.
Head Chef Paulo taught the group new recipes for gelato popsicles, gelato sandwiches, and other treats. One of our favorite discoveries was the gelato popsicles. Gelato covered in chocolate, maybe even rolled in nuts, on a stick for an easy to eat delicious treat? Yes, please!
Check out some of the new products we crafted:
What do you think? Would you like to see some of these gelato creations at your local Iorio’s Gelato cafe?
Other highlights included our very own Nick Lemmer singing karaoke in an Irish bar, visiting the local gelaterias (Vixi was a favorite), and learning to ride hoverboards.
On the journey home we did get stuck at the Miami Airport for six hours. Talk about team bonding! Mostly we passed the time by eating airport snacks and the largest avocado discovered by man, but we did manage to sneak some conversations in about gelato, flavors, improvements, and more “work” related topics.
