Gelato, a luxurious version of ice cream, is considered to be an authentic Italian dessert with a tradition of cooking that goes back to the 16th century. Since then, this dish has become one of the stable synonyms of Italy. However, not every gelato is a product that embodies classical traditions and recipes. True Italian gelato represents a fascinating all-fresh handmade mixture of local ingredients, in contrast with the factory-made low-quality dishes offered in most gelaterias. If you want to try the flavor of authentic a gelato, take the opportunity to get acquainted with the products of Gelato San Lorenzo, this year’s winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the category of The Best Luxury Ice Cream in Italy.
Gelato San Lorenzo is one of the newest gelaterias in Rome. It was opened in 2017, and it took only a few months to become a favorite place among many connoisseurs of artisan ice cream. The shop is located in San Lorenzo, one of the historic districts of the Italian capital. This is a lively area with a great variety of fine restaurants, burger joints, aperitif spots, and student bars. The shop quickly gained popularity among locals and tourists: the highest quality of products and impeccable service played an extremely beneficial role in the success of the gelateria.
The founders of Gelato San Lorenzo put their passion and precision in choosing the best and finest raw materials above all. To prepare the ice cream, the team of the shop uses high-quality milk, sugar, organic eggs, proteins, vegetable fibers, fresh seasonal fruit, luxury chocolate from Valhrona, high-quality almonds from Noto, and round hazelnut from Langhe PGI.
The recipes of a marvelous frozen treat are based on the creatively combined and carefully chosen 100% natural ingredients. The Gelato San Lorenzo products contain 25% less sugar than the usual ice cream and are free of hydrogenated and refined vegetable fats, monoglycerides, diglycerides, dyes, gelling agents, and flavorings. To meet the needs of as many customers as possible, the company produces specific types of ice creams, including gluten-free ice cream, vegan ice cream, and ice cream without sugar, fat, or milk.
Gelato San Lorenzo has its own laboratory, which allows the team to process the ingredients according to tradition and produce as pure ice cream as possible. As a result, every day, the customers can enjoy the impeccable taste of freshly made luxurious Italian-style ice cream. Drawing on traditions and its own developments, the team of Gelato San Lorenzo is constantly researching and implementing innovations, achieving a perfect balance of flavor and texture.
For the Luxury Lifestyle Awards experts, one of the most remarkable aspects in the process of making Gelato San Lorenzo ice cream was the optimal way to store the product in the carapine. This is a special type of conservation, helping to preserve the gelato’s consistency, softness, taste, fragrance, scent, and natural color. The use of carapine provides stable temperature, light, and humidity, which is the key to the perfect hygiene of ice cream.
