Gelato Making

Although students flock enthusiastically to snack bar’s gelato station, few know the process and ingredients that create the colorful ridges of cold, sweet creaminess. In fact, many eager consumers are probably unaware that this frozen dessert needs not travel far to reach its intermediary destination – gelato and sorbet master Trish makes both delicacies in the basement of Paresky. I was lucky enough to observe the process one Friday morning, and now consumption of this decadent dessert no longer leaves me bewildered – indeed, given the high-quality ingredients that comprise the final product, it’s not surprising that Williams’ gelato is so tantalizingly delicious.
