Gelato di Babbo

In five years Gelato di Babbo has become one of the largest manufacturers of artisan gelati and sorbetti in Pennsylvania. Insataible EATS Catering Company, based in the Hamptons and New York City, now offers gelato by Gelato di Babbo. This gelato is all natural and uses the highest quality of imported ingredients.

During a summer trip to Naples, Italy, owner Kim Zanni fell in love with gelato. Indulging in the frozen treat daily, Zanni was inspired by the social scene, and passion the Italian people had for gelato. On her return to the US, Zanni’s determination to create her own gelato kicked into high gear. Kim began experimenting with recipes sent from friends and family from Italy. In the beginning she utilized raw milk that literally went from the cow, to pasteurization, to production without leaving the farm. Goat’s milk was secured from a local Amish farm.

After experimenting with several recipes, Zanni came up with a gelato, naming it Gelato di Babbo which literally means,“hit the streets.” She purchased a rickshaw-like push cart on eBay, and had a box custom made for it to hold the gelato and dry ice.

Kim began pedaling her gelato. Today seven classically Italian flavors are making their way into a national distribution that has grown from 20 stores to over 200 in 15 states.

You can rent the Insatiable EATS gelato cart for special events and parties. Call 631-377-3353.
