How to Make Gelato

by Marie Asselin


If you've ever been to Italy or hoped to go, you've probably heard of gelato, especially since it was popularized by Elizabeth Gilbert's bestseller Eat, Pray, Love. It's a delicious dessert that can upscale any meal and impress the most difficult guests.

How to Make Gelato is a Skillshare class taught by award-winning cookbook writer Marie Asselin. Asselin is a recipe developer and food stylist. She's the author behind Simply Citrus, French Appetizers, and the ten-year-old food blog Food Nouveau.

In this class, Asselin explains how gelato differs from ice cream, in spite of their few similarities. She also gives tips on making gelato and teaches step-by-step how to make both a basic gelato base as well as a vegan alternative, before adding various flavors.
