West Chester gelato maker part of ‘world tour’


Julianna and Vincenzo Tettamanti of Gemelli Artisanal Gelato and Dessert Cafe on Market Street in West Chester. 

Gelato maestro Vincenzo Tettamanti of Gemelli - Artisanal Gelato & Dessert Café in West Chester has been selected to compete in an international competition, the Gelato World Tour. The tour travels internationally in search of the best gelato flavors in the world and this round will take place in New York City on April 27.

Tettamanti is competing for a chance to enter the Gelato World Tour grand finale, which will be held in Rimini, Italy to crown the best gelato Maestri in the World. 

The competing maestri will bring their ingredients and handcraft their respective flavors fresh on site for a professional jury to decide, based on presentation, structure and flavor.

Tettamanti’s farm fresh gelato flavor was selected based on the reputation of the maestro and the gelato shop, the balance of the truly artisanal gelato recipe and the creativity of the flavor proposed. The competing flavor is Tettamanti’s Goat Cheese & Fig Balsamic Reduction: creamy, fresh goat cheese gelato folded with a handcrafted balsamic from Modena.

The flavor will be available in Gemelli’s gelato case for the whole week of April 24.
