Gelato Sliders aka Gelato Paninis are the rage in Italy. Well guess what? You can now have them at Il Gelato di Carlotta at 59 Queen Street in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada, the home of the Shaw Festival.
While we use the Italian Christmas cake, Pannetone, once the cake season is done, we will revert to either a Brioche bun or a Calabrese bun. We cut it in half, smear it with your favourite gelato, close it and then put it in our Italian gizmo which looks like it is out of Star Trek. It seals and warms the bun without melting the gelato. Cut it through the middle and you have two halves of a gelato hamburger. Try one today! Remember the Star Trek line: Resistance is futile!
And don’t forget. We also serve hot waffles in four different styles, with globs of our pure gelato and laced with gianduia, our warm melted hazelnut chocolate.
A young taster visited us with her friends and shot this cute video with music for TasteMade. Click below on our name to check it out and Kimberley please tell us how to display it straight up. We tried ):
GELATO Di CARLOTTA
Our master gelato maker, Lorenzo Stangarone, has been busy churning out a special Halloween collection of gelato cakes made with, yes, pumpkin pie gelato. Only a Florentine can think of taking Canada’s pumpkin pie and turn it into a gelato. And guess what? It is a sellout! As are the Halloween gelato cakes.
Take a look below at the haloween and other collections and then ask yourself why you still haven’t visited us at 59 Queen Street in Niagara on the Lake! Remember the old line from Star Trek: Resistance is futile!
We have two flavours inspired by two Italian-themed Shaw Festival Plays and also gelato cakes made around the plays. Amaretto for Enchanted April and Buontalenti for Light in the Piazza, a very rare Florentine flavour for a very Florentine play. This did not go unnoticed by the wonderful folks at Shaw who quickly gave us a plug in their e-newsletter… Click anywhere on the image to check out the newsletter!
