In May 2014, Cristina Amoroso was a high-paid financial analyst for a global oil company and Paola Richard was a journalist and international media consultant for Italian ministries moved from Rome directly to Carlsbad to bring the authentic taste of the worldwide renowned Italian gelato.
Their passion and research for the most outstanding traditional gelato brought Chef Cristina to Università dei Sapori in Perugia, Italy (University of Flavors) http://www.universitadeisapori.it, where she attended long term courses in artisanal gelato production, frozen pastries and decoration, working and learning from some of the most famous Italian and Sicilian gelato masters.
Stepping into Gaia Gelato (“gaia” means joyful in Italian) is like taking a trip to Rome. .
Italian Gelato is denser, creamier and with less sugar than many American-style gelatos and ice cream. Christina has developed more than 120 flavors of gelato, sorbet and granita and introduces new ones all the time. To preserve the flavor and texture, gelatos are made in small batches and not sold after 24 hours. Come and taste the freshness.
