Yum alert! This weekend, Melbourne is lucky enough to play host to the Gelato World Tour as part of the Carlton Italian Fiesta. The event brings together top gelato artisans to demonstrate their skills (and flavours) in the gelato arts.
Melbourne is one of eight cities chosen to be a ‘gelato capital’, along with Rome, Valencia, Dubai, Shanghai, Austin, San Paulo and Berlin. The World Tour committee chose Melbourne because it has a creative energy, with the best restaurants, bars and street food. And they need your help to discover the ‘world’s best gelato’.
The best flavours will be judged with equal input from a professional jury and the public. That means you, yes you, your family, your neighbor, that random dude from down the street and you sister’s best friend’s cousin, can all have a say. The top three gelato artisans selected during the tour will compete at the grand finale in Italy.
So grab your gelato pass, tasting spoon and get down to the gelato village in Carlton’s Argyle Square from Friday 25 October to experience the delicious flavours of the Gelato World Tour.
