I have a love for sweets & treats like no other.
So when I found out the opportunity was available to go behind the scenes at Fiasco Gelato to hand create my own frozen delight, I squealed like I had won the lottery!
This is Fiasco Gelato’s ‘Gelato Academy‘
First it’s beers & cheeses, then you’re off to the kitchen.
And then is all up to your imagination, because inside the kitchen at Fiasco, they’ve got all sorts of fixins for your gelato.
A long time ago I was involved in a focus group for Dairy Queen where we were testing new flavours. All the flavours we sampled made it to the market except for 1:
It was my favourite! I was devastated, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. Now it was my turn to make it happen!
Heck yah I baked my own cookies!
After it was all blended, I crumbled a few of my baked cookies, tossed them in and loaded the liquid into the machine.
When it was finally frozen, as the creamy concoction creeped out of the machine I folded it with chunks of chopped cookies, globs of peanut butter and chopped up smarties.
Then came the hardest part: What to name it!
And in honor of the DQ Blizzard that never was, it was decided!
8 pints to take home to share (or not… Probably not).
The Fiasco Gelato Academy was an awesome experience. It was not only amazing to make my own, it was super cool to watch & taste my classmate’s creations as well!
I know I’ll be back as soon as my gelato supplies diminish!
Now off to eat.
Mr.Fab cookie gelato!
