Judging gelato – the best gig of my life

The end of the Gelato World Tour – the culmination of three years of worldwide national competitions where the public could vote for their favourite flavour. Since 2015 over 1,800 gelato makers have competed for a place in the finals held in the north Italian town of Rimini. 36 finalists from 4 continents and 19 different countries prepared batches of their winning flavours with ingredients ranging from rose water and black tea to cheese, extra virgin olive oil and even meat.
I was asked if I’d like to be on the journalists’ jury. What a silly question!
