Ice cream dreams

Gelato Vittorio offers a wide range of ice cream flavours



ITALIAN DELIGHT: Gelato Vittorio, a natural Italian dessert launched recently in New Delhi

In the far North of Italy, the people of Dolomite created gelato - ice cream - and in the far South, it was created by Sicilians. In Dolomite, gelato was prepared with cream, milk, sugar, eggs and natural flavours. It was considered a rich man's dessert and few could afford it.

Snow was stored in the basement during the winter, and when tourists travelled during summertime into the mountains of Dolomite, the sale of gelato was one of the major sources of income for the people. It is still recognised as one of the highest quality desserts by discriminating food lovers across the world.

Now in Delhi

It's no surprise that when our very own fashion designer Vijay Arora went to Italy he was also spellbound by the delectable gelato. But unlike others, he went a step ahead and decided to bring the rich man's dessert to Delhiites. At Gelato Vittorio, Arora's Italian ice cream parlour, which recently opened in the Capital, you can try a range of sorbet, slush, yogurt, milkshakes and sundaes in different flavours and a sugar-free range of desserts and drinks for the health conscious.

Though gelato is made from the same ingredients as ice cream, there are certain guidelines to follow. While ordinary ice cream has 18 per cent butter fat, gelato is said to contain 4-8 per cent fat, and fruit flavours are water-based, containing less than 1 per cent fat. Also, it is produced daily to ensure the product is always fresh, unlike ice cream, which is manufactured and stored for long periods.

At Gelato Vittorio, aficionados have a wide range of 36 flavours, including orange chocolate, rich Belgian chocolate, vanilla chocolate to choose from. While the parlour in M Block market, Greater Kailash I, has a seating capacity of 40, home delivery is also available.
