William Angliss Institute together with Majors Group Australasia and Carpigiani Gelato (CGU) have collaborated to offer CGU gelato making courses in Melbourne, Australia.  This is the first of its kind in Australia and is the same course as that being offered at CGU headquarters Bologna, Italy.

The Gelato Course Level 1 is designed for aspiring gelato entrepreneurs who require an understanding of the world of gelato through training and practical experience.  This course is also ideal for current industry professionals who need to upskill and expand their gelato making knowledge and skills, and for new entrants into the gelato industry.

The primary objective of this course is to teach basic theoretical and practical concepts required to produce gelato of a superior quality, using latest generation laboratory machines.

• Artisan Gelato: what is it?

• Production method

• Production cycle, machines and equipment

• Development and calculation of gelato mix bases
