GelAteneo Italian Gelato School - Now in Australia !
Gelateneo is a training facility inspired in the CATTABRIGA traditional values of excellence, now at disposal of all the ICETEAM 1927 brands. We are proud to have Gelateneo in Australia and will be making our school available to our customers and their staff thoughout 2014.
Gelateneo is not a traditional “school” as it focuses on the practical application of gelato making without the frantic pace of a real shop.
We run Gelateneo courses in beautiful places which are synonymous with quality ingredients, beautiful surroundings and of course, fun. Everyone of our courses receive raving reviews and is enjoyed by all the participants.
Our courses are held by well-known professionals or food technology experts, mainly in English and Italian languages.
Our last school was run by our friends from Italy giving it an unique and traditional atmosphere. All of our participants learned how to craft traditional gelato, ice-cream & yoghurt using modern machines which replicate traditional methods, dating back to 1900's Italy.
