Description: For Italians, pausing to enjoy a scoop of intensely flavored, velvety gelato is a favorite pastime that requires no special occasion. It's an excuse to take an afternoon stroll or visit with others at the neighborhood gelateria, where the proprietor uses only premium ingredients and age-old techniques to handcraft the world's best ice cream. Every Italian town and city has its own beloved gelaterie, offering seasonal specialties and family recipes that have been handed down for generations. Pamela Sheldon Johns gives us the grand tour of these gelaterie, tracing gelato's roots back to Sicily and uncovering the secrets of great gelato making. 

Gelati and its fruit-based cousins, sorbetti and granite, are richer than ordinary ice creams and sherberts yet less fattening and sweet. And the best news is that authentic gelato, and even the waffle cones they are often served in, are surprisingly easy to make at home! 

As with most foods in Italy, each region has its own special flavors and interpretations. In Gelato! you'll find these local favorites and more, including: 

  • Blood Orange-Campari Sorbetto 
  • Chocolate-Hazelnut Gelato 
  • Blackberry-Sangiovese Sorbetto 
  • Almond Granita 
  • Caramel Semifreddo 


More than 50 recipes for gelato and other desserts made with this sumptuous, icy treat glisten and tempt in glorious photographs. Gelato! captures the flavors, places, and passions that have inspired many a culinary pilgrimage to Italy.
