I Scream, You Scream, We'll All Scream for Gelato at Scottsdale Festival

Oct 12, 2018 445

Gelato is the Italian word for ice cream, but is there a difference between the two? According to kitchen.com, gelato begins with a custard base, as does ice cream, "but has a higher proportion of milk and a lower proportion of cream and eggs (or no eggs at all). It is churned at a much slower rate, incorporating less air and leaving the gelato denser than ice cream."

Gelato is also served at a warmer temperature, which makes if softer, and has a lower percentage of fat, according to the website. But don't take kitchen.com's word for it.  Find out for yourself. The seven-city Gelato Festival America tour will stop in Scottsdale from noon until 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 20, and from noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday, October 21, at Kierland Commons, 15205 North Kierland Boulevard, #150. It will conclude in Tucson the following week. The festival will visit Jersey City, New Jersey; Washington, D.C.; Chicago; Dallas; and Santa Barbara, California, before reaching Arizona.
