Can you translate GUSTI PARADISIO?


your ode to Halloween:)In Italy, food goes hand in hand with tradition . It is doubtful that anyone honors this tradition more than Gelato Giuliana. The flavor of our Lemon Gelato Giuliana is intense and refreshing.

About Gelato Giuliana, one could easily say “gusti paradisio” / heavenly taste.

It is believed that the lemon originated in Asia. In fact, significant cultivation of lemons in Europe began in Italy in the middle of the 15th century. The lemon was later introduced to the Americas in 1493, when Christopher Columbus brought lemon seeds with him on voyages to the New World.

A few weeks ago, around Columbus Day, we talked about Christopher’s influence on the popularity of chocolate. It’s hardly surprising, that he also influenced lemon, another of the world’s most popular flavors.

Needless to say, GELATO GIULIANA is spreading the culture of GELATO throughout our region. Our “gelato maestros” have decades of experience in the art of this Italian tradition.

Pumpkin Spice Gelato Giuliana – Perfetto!

PUMPKIN originates from the Greek word PEPON (large melon). Pumpkins are native to North America…the colonists eventually changed the term to PUMPKIN. In fact, the world’s heaviest pumpkin on record recently tipped the scales at over 2,000 pounds. Honeybees influence the pollination of this widely cultivated fruit.  A member of the Cucurbitaceae family, pumpkin fruit is rich in antioxidants and low in calories.

The time is ripe for “everything pumpkin.”

Pumpkins have played an important role in folk lore – Cinderella’s Coach, the Legend of Sleepy Hallow,  carved Jack O’ Lanterns for Halloween and Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving are at the “tip of my tongue”. Of course, having tales at the tip of one’s tongue is not quite as delicious as the real thing.

Would Christopher Columbus enjoy Chocolate Gelato Giuliana?

In 1502 Christopher Columbus was on his fourth and final voyage to the New World

Christopher Columbus would love Chocolate Gelato Giuliana

Christopher Columbus brought Cacao beans back to Spain from the new world…

where he met t Mayan trading canoe on an island off the coast of Honduras. He brought cocoa beans back to Spain. It took some time for this confectionary treat to catch on in Europe.

Sometimes it’s fun to ask questions even when you know or can guess the answer.

Did you know the history of Gelato dates back to the 1500’s?

Journey to France: romance and adventure are involved in this story. Catherine de’ Medici, an Italian duchess, married a French Duke, Henry II, in 1553. Catherine enticed Giuseppe Ruggeri to bring his prized recipe for traditional artisan gelato to her husband’s delighted court in France. Nobility everywhere coveted this dessert.

Catherine De Medici influenced the history of gelato…

Hence, the legend of  artisanal gelato may well originate from this era. Within a century, France became enamored with this delicacy and the popularity of “frozen snow” spread throughout Europe.

Ancient civilizations had already combined fruits and juice with snow saved in underground chambers or from snowfalls on mountain tops. In fact, there is a biblical reference of Isaac offering Abraham goat’s milk mixed with snow. Such a lovely clue to the myriad legends surrounding gelato!

Back to Italy:  As gelato gained favor in the French court, back home in Italy’s northern areas, folks of the Dolomit mountain area made gelato with milk, cream, sugar, eggs and natural flavors; in southern areas, Sicilian recipes favored less fat and stored the precious mixture in deep underground rooms. The recipes for “frozen snow” eventually spread from Europe around the world and to America. Artisan Gelato making is intertwined with Italian tradition.

As you may know, American Ice Cream is a totally different product and we will have more to say about that very soon.

Fast Forward in Italy: The Carpigiani Group  makes modern gelato machines and recently built a “gelato museum” in the small northern town of Anzola dell’Emilia, near Bologna.  Opened in 2012, the museum  showcases the history of gelato from antiquity to present. Our friend, Giuseppe Ruggeri would be charmed to know that his important contribution to the history of gelato is showcased in the museum along with vintage gelato machines, original recipes, memorabilia from Italian gelaterias, gelato labs and a gelato university. This incredible heritage informs the more recent history of Gelato Giuliana.
