While living in Florence, Italy, Katrina and Carmelo fell in love with the Italian passion for the simple, wonderful pleasures of everyday life. The epitome of this lifestyle was the leisurely evening stroll, the passeggiata,when the whole city poured into the streets to see friends and neighbors. Often, the evening was capped off with a scoop or two of Italian ice cream, gelato.
Inspired to bring this experience to New Orleans, the Turillo’s traveled across Italy and studied the artisanal method of making gelato and sorbetto from scratch.
