We are excited to announce our first gelato training class of 2023!
Differently from the already scheduled others, this training will be an exclusive, comprehensive class focused on keto-friendly vegan gelato.
During the latest years, the demand for vegan gelato has exponentially arisen. Due to the evolving needs of society, today the food industry is in fact facing the challenges of a public which is quickly adapting its consumer behaviors according to the environmental and ethical issues.
Vegan and keto-friendly gelato
To understand how big the vegan market is today, keep in mind that 10% of the population in the US is vegetarian. Likewise, among these a rough 5% is vegan.
For this reason, all the gelato shops must meet the requirements of a growing audience of customers with a vegan, environmentally and ethically conscious diet. Vegan gelato can surely be as delicious as the traditional one; besides, ignoring this cluster of population would be a pointless waste.
In our new one-time-only class, we also decided to include keto-friendly flavors to allow any gelato master with a long term vision to meet the trending demands.
Ketogenic one is a kind of gelato made with ingredients that are low in carbohydrates and high in fat. It doesn’t use any artificial ingredients, and takes all the fats from natural sources such as nuts and coconut oil. No preservatives, no sugar: only natural, low calories sweeteners that help the body burn fats instead of carbs.
When and when?
The vegan keto-friendly training class will be held by the gelato international expert Luca Musolesi in our showroom in Brooklyn, on February 9.

Chef Luca Musolesi
Chef Luca Musolesi was born in Italy, in a place where quality food is not an option but a key cultural feature.
He started making his own gelato at home at the age of 12. Since then, he has kept developing his own recipes, refining the techniques and experimenting with flavors and ingredients.
During his physics studies at the university, he became a food science expert and he applied all his related knowledge to his recipes. He discovered how the process behind the formation of ice crystals in the clouds was similar to the one behind ice crystals in ice creams, and therefore he was able to further research and master the techniques.
Thanks to his attention to the health and environmental issues of the modern world, Luca deepened and focused on vegan and keto-friendly gelato.
Last but not least, today he’s the Founder of gelato.expert, and assists gelato makers sharing his know-how and vision all over the world.
