The tour travels 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 maestro in the world.
The competing maestri will bring their ingredients and hand-craft 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 his reputation, the perfect balance of the truly artisanal gelato recipe, and the creativity of the flavor proposed.
The flavor is called Vincenzo’s Goat Cheese and Fig Balsamic Reduction, and it’s made with creamy, fresh goat cheese gelato folded with a handcrafted balsamic and fig reduction.
“The flavor I crafted is a gourmet and refined gelato combination that reflects my love for my home country while pairing high quality, local, and fresh ingredients together in an extremely well-balanced flavor profile,” he said.
“Also a great opportunity to showcase one of the local partners I work with in town, A Taste of Olive, which is where I source all the Italian balsamic and olive oil used in my desserts.
“West Chester is such an amazing community where I both live and work, and I am honored to represent it in an international competition like the Gelato World Tour.”
To celebrate this accomplishment, the flavor will also be available in Gemelli’s gelato case during the week of April 24. Stop in to try this gourmet flavor, Goat Cheese and Fig Balsamic Reduction.
