Our Gelato

Flavors

HANDCRAFTED WITH LOVE IN CHICAGO

Similar to ice cream, our gelato starts with simple, local ingredients: milk, cream, sugar, and eggs. We start with our very own base recipe and combine it with real flavorings made fresh in our kitchens daily. We churn every day, in every shop to bring you the very best gelato in sometimes unconventional flavors.

CANTALOUPE ELDERFLOWER SORBET

Gelato vs. Ice Cream

Catering

Gelato and ice cream are similar in that they both are made with cream, milk, sugar, and eggs. However, gelato is creamier, smoother, and silkier, as well as denser and more elastic than ice cream. In the gelato making process, less air is incorporated while churning, which is how gelato achieves its creamy texture with less fat than traditional, American-style ice cream. 

Another difference is the serving temperature. Gelato is served warmer than ice cream, around 7 to 12 degrees Fahrenheit, which leaves your mouth less numb. This allows you to better taste the intense flavors.

All of our flavors begin with our custom base, which is flavored and matured for 24 hours. The liquid bases are then delivered to our gelato shops for spinning. Only the gelato we make that morning is sold that day. In the summer months, we produce between 400-700 gallons a week.
