Expanding on The Fundamentals of Gelato & Sorbetto Production class, PreGel America offers a two-day course on the advanced production of gelato and sorbetto. Students will be educated on the more advanced flavors and flavor combination of gelato and sorbetto, including alcohol-infusion. The class also covers the formulation of customized recipes, the scientific approach to ingredient composition, and the effect of each ingredient on the final composition of gelato and sorbetto.  Attendees will also experience a fun new concept – the Gelato Slice – which combines the decadence of gelato, cake, and fillings layered into a visually appealing and delicious novelty. From traditional to extreme and trendy flavors, the class ultimately focuses on unique gelato and sorbetto recipe formulations to fit your business needs.
