I Scream, You Scream…

Just as the weather in Perugia is starting to warm up and the main corso is filling with caffe tables and white umbrellas, students in Umbra’s Food Cultures class had a chance to visit a local artisanalgelateria to see how Italy’s famous summertime treat is made. Signora Paola at the Fonte Maggiore gelateria, located in Piazza IV Novembre just behind the fountain in the center of Perugia, makes all of her gelato in-house and using only fresh ingredients — no preservatives or artificial flavorings here. Students saw how she and her assistants make both the cream and fruit-based flavors, and had a chance to sample the fior di latte, green apple, and tiramisu varieties. Not suprisingly, gelato makes for a pretty tasty field trip!
