School launches a ‘virtual taste’ of gelato making

Carpigiani Gelato University is hosting an e-learning project on the art of gelato making starting this week. The school will stream one lesson per day from its Bologna, Italy campus. Online participants will have the opportunity to engage with gelato instructors.
The university was founded in 2003 as the training division of the Carpigiani Group. The company said the school is recognised internationally as a “breeding ground” for successful gelato artisans.
"Gelato lovers will have a chance to begin their gelato and culinary journey with Carpigiani Gelato University,” said Kaori Ito, director, Carpigiani Gelato University. “The topics covered in the one and half hour e-courses are based on Gelato University's basic course.”
Ito added that students who complete the e-courses would gain access to an exclusive in-person practice session at one of the 20 Gelato University satellite campuses around the world.
For those who cannot follow the live sessions, podcasts will be available from 9-31 March 2020. For details, visit
