The Qatar International Food Festival 2016 saw me discovering many new flavors. One of them was the Italian/ Venetian Gelato brand, Nova Venezia.
I heard the brand for the first time and it is an artisanal brand in Doha. Unlike other ice creams or gelatos this brand is fresh. Their gelatos last only two weeks and are prepared with milk instaed of cream. The secret of the creamy texture is a process called ‘mantecazione’ where it is frozen and churned slowly, so it doesn’t absorb so much air.
They had three flavors with vanilla, nuts and pistachio. I just went to try the Pistachio gelato and it was mindblowing. All you could taste was pistachios. Not anything like an extract or additive. Pure pistachio flavor. I am really hooked.
The gelato texture is amazing. There were some crispy wafers that paired really well with the gelato. I highly recommend this brand to everyone. Ice creams are never the same again. Unfortunately they do not have a shop in Doha but you can find more information here.
