Carrello del Gelato Presents Two Wellington on a Plate Event

Carrello del Gelato Presents Two Wellington on a Plate Events: ‘It’s a Sweet Life’ & ‘It’s a Sweet Lunch’

Wellington-based premium gelato producer ‘Carrello del Gelato’ is hosting two events in this year’s ‘Visa Wellington on a Plate’ (VWOAP) Festival: ‘It’s a Sweet Life’, an opportunity for children (& an accompanying adult) to experience the making of authentic Italian style gelato, and ‘It’s a Sweet Lunch’, a pop up gelato cart on Lambton Quay serving Carrello del Gelato flavours sandwiched between Leeds Street Bakery biscotto.

Carrello del Gelato’s founder and chief executive Nathan Meyer said, “Last year ‘It’s a Sweet Life’ was sold out within minutes of going online so for this year we are providing four sessions throughout the day to enable more children to visit our Newtown factory and have a ‘hands on’ experience making gelato.”

‘It’s a Sweet Life’- a very sweet offer for children. Each guest will be greeted on arrival at the factory and then be taken through to the production kitchen where they’ll wash their hands and suit up. There they’ll be shown the entire gelato making process from weighing ingredients to packaging. This will involve an explanation of the production process, an opportunity to ask questions, and guests will leave with a tub of the gelato that they’ve produced. ‘It’s a Sweet Life’ will take place on Saturday, 16 August at 9.00am, 10.45am, 12.30pm and 2.15pm.

‘It’s a Sweet Lunch” – Gelato street cart comes to central Wellington. The Carrello del Gelato gelato cart will be out and about in a pop-up central city location from for four days during the Festival: Thursday and Friday, 21 & 22 August, and the following Thursday and Friday, 28 & 29 August. A range of Carrello del Gelato’s Wellington inspired award winning flavours will be available sandwiched between biscotto provided by the Leeds Street Bakery. Leeds St Bakery is a small boutique bakery, selling a range of cakes, biscuits and organic bread, established by brothers Jesse Simpson and Shepherd Elliott of the popular Ti Kouka café on Willis Street.

Using authentic Italian methods & recipes, Carrello del Gelato craft the finest, authentic gelato and sorbets in their purpose built factory in Newtown. They use fresh New Zealand and authentic Italian ingredients to create each batch just before delivery to you so it is as fresh as it can be.

Nathan Meyer said, “VWOAP has been embraced by Wellingtonians: it’s a fun event that enables you to get closer to Wellington’s cafés, restaurants and artisan produce suppliers, and try different taste experiences. We look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones at this year’s VWOAP.”
