Founded nearly 50 years ago by Claire Sisco of Calabria, Italy, Al Gelato Chicago, Franklin Park, Ill., has grown and now show-cases hand-crafted, artisan gelatos and sorbets for multiple channels. One of its most popular foodservice lines is a unique, 4oz Gelato Truffle, which comes packed 12 per box.
“Gelato Truffles have become popular among chefs for their taste, appearance, ease of preparation, versatility and cost control,” says Mike Hahn, general manager.
Al Gelato produces as many as 20 varieties, including Amaretto Almond, Burnt Caramel & Chocolate, Red Raspberry & Chocolate, White Chocolate Hazelnut and White Chocolate Chip. Hahn says the products carry kosher and halal certification and feature all-natural ingredients, including rBST-free milk.
