THE COMPLETE PROGRAM OF THE SPANISH STOP OF THE WORLD CHALLENGE “GELATO WORLD TOUR” AND THE PRESENTATION OF THE PHOTOGRAPICH CONTEST “GELATO PIXEL PASSION”!
Valencia will be the next Artisan Gelato Capital (July, 5TH-7TH , from 1pm to 12pm, Playa de la Malvarrosa)
The expectations are more than high, if you think that in Rome (the challenge first stop) the gelato production was doubled because of the long queues at the artisans’ stalls (every day each gelato chef participating produced more than 100 Kg of gelato). The sweetest challenge will continue in Melbourne (October, 25th-27th), Dubai, San Paulo, Shanghai, Austin and Berlin.
10% of the proceeds will be donated to charity to “Cottolengo del Padre Alegre”
Bologna, July 2nd 2013 – Valencia will be the next Artisanal Gelato capital (July, 5th-7th, Playa de la Malvarrosa, Paseo Maritimo 13).
