Italian gelato is a thing of beauty in itself and yes, it is different from ice cream: it’s made with whole milk, it’s churned at a lower speed, and served at a higher temperature – see this handy infographic for more info.
But turning up the beauty dial even further is a geletaria in Sydney, Australia called i-Creamy, which serves its 24 flavours of homemade gelato as amazing flower gelato.
According to the website, the owner studied at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and then the Carpigiani Gelato University on the outskirts of Bologna, before establishing i-Creamy in 2012.
They certainly aren’t the first to experiment with gelato flowers, but they’ve built up quite a following for their exquisite treats. And if you’re wondering exactly how they do it then take a look at the video further down.
It’s just such a shame they have to melt/not a shame to eat them.
