That's right, it's a Gelato World Tour legitimately sponsored by an Italian Gelato University. (Yes it is a thing apparently). Here you can taste an assortment of unique and absolutely delicious gelatos.
Taste its flavor, learn its art, vote for your favorite.Gelato World Tour, Melbourne (Australia) stage, 25-27 October 2013. Join us at Argyle Square on Friday (12.30pm - 9.30pm), Saturday (11.00am - 9.30pm) and Sunday (11.00am - 7pm), during the Carlton Italian Festa. The event is organized by Carpigiani Gelato University and Sigep (with main partners IFI and MEC3). The objective: to share with the public this fresh, high-quality food that represents the excellence and creativity of thousands of gelato artisans.
|How cute are these giant ice cream cones?|
|Vouchers in hand? Mission start!|
|"Would anyone like to try?" "Me! I volunteer!"|
There were also other events going on such as mini classes and talks all about gelato. Who knew the whole process was so technical?
|These special gelato containers are so awesome. They spun around and apparently quite exclusive to the event.|
|You still got a lot from the "small" sample.|
We would recommend you grab the information pamphlet and look at everything on offer, then grab a pen and note down which ones you wanted and in what size. Then you can also not which ones you like so that you can vote afterwards. This helped us move around much more efficiently.
It was intense, let me tell you. Who would ever think we could ever have too much gelato? Definitely an experience that we would welcome again. Although Melbourne was being its crazy self and it started pouring. Everyone emptied the area...except us. We were the only ones left standing at our table and gobbling everything down. "Protect the ice cream!"
|Can't eat any more...|
So if you happen to have time this weekend, I highly recommend you make your way to Argyle Square (right off Lygon St) to check this event out. We enjoyed ourselves greatly and you are guaranteed to find something that you'll like.
