Gelato shops are popping up all over the US, but one tiny shop in Hanover, NH has caught the attention of foodies for its authenticity and devotion to Italian gelato culture. Morano Gelato, founded by 30-year-old Morgan Morano, has won praise from Yankee Magazine, NH Magazine and even Forbes for its authentic Italian gelato featuring fresh, local ingredients, age-old techniques and even Italian names for the flavors. Now Morgan Morano is bringing this delicious dessert to homes across the world in her new book, ‘The Art Of Making Gelato’.
In this brilliant book, Morano shares fifty favorite gelato and sorbetto recipes that range from the basic chocolate chip to traditional Italian recipes like Olio d’Oliva (olive oil). Inside this beautifully created book, you will find not only recipes to make traditional and creamy gelato, but it will also give you fantastic tips on how to choose the right gelato maker and ingredients.
The book starts off by giving you a brief history of Morgan Morano and how she traveled to Italy only to find that she had a deep passion for bringing traditional Gelato to America. Morano opened her gelato shop in Hanover, NH in 2010 after spending time under the tutelage of a Sicilian gelato maker in Florence, Italy. With degrees in history, anthropology and culinary arts, Morano was enraptured by the gelato culture in Italy—a culture she saw lacking in gelato recipes and shops in America.
Recently, I had the chance to ask Morgan Morano a couple of questions about her new book and her experience with Gelato:
