The people at Venchi have been making chocolate since 1878….and they are good at it. Here is what they say about themselves.
Since 1878 the ‘chocolate soul’ has been expressing through unique products, in which the Italian taste is the absolute protagonist. Exclusive recipes and extraordinary raw materials, which have never been altered by chemical processes or preservatives, are the key points of Venchi’s success.
Now the good people at Venchi make gelato and there is a store in Florence in Via Roma, not too far from the Ponte Vecchio.
In the name of research I had to try the gelato on a recent trip to Florence. I sampled the fig and marscapone and it was too delicious for words.
Their gelato is made on site using only natural ingredients and flavours that change with the seasons.
Don’t ever eat inferior ice cream, life is too short. Soft serve ice cream is made from hydrolyzed muck.
