One of my favorite desserts, and probably the only dairy-filled one I would ever cheat with, is gelato. So when I found out there’s a Gelato World Tour and it was coming to Austin I didn’t hesitate to register 🙂

The Gelato World Tour is on its way here and will be held in one of our favorite spots – Republic Square Park in downtown Austin.

Sixteen of the best gelato chefs from the US will compete to create the world’s best flavor. You get to catch all the action live while each chef produces a unique flavor right in front of you – sounds perfect to me! They’re asking guests to taste and vote for your favorite flavor, which sounds like a perfect way to spend the afternoon.


Tour details:

The tour is open to the public, free and sponsored by Carpigiani Gelato University. You can take part in free demonstrations, and learn the difference between gelato and ice cream.

Event Date: May 9th – 11th, 2014

Event Venue: Republic Square Park, Downtown Austin, TX, USA

Gelato World Tour’s mission is to spread the culture of Italian gelato, a fresh artisan food product to the general public throughout the world.
