I love ice cream. I love gelato. After spending years trying to compare the two, I realized that the key is not to ask what’s better than the other, but instead to simply accept each one for what it is and what it offers.

So I started Gaia Gelato in hopes of sharing my unique point of view on ice cream and gelato and encouraging others to embrace these cold treats for what they are and all that they have to offer.

What began as a passion for making great ice cream and gelato has grown into a continual journey of discovery.
