Carte D’Or Gelato: Soon in the Philippines

Carte D’Or Gelato, a European gelato brand present in
in Italy, France, Russia, Brazil, and Turkey, among others, is coming to the Philippines very soon – May 23, 2017 to be exact!

Carte D’Or Gelato Making with Chef Miko Aspiras

Carte D’Or Gelato is closely working together with multi-awarded and premier pastry chef- Chef Miko Aspiras. In the media launch, we got to personally experience how to make a simple Pistachio-flavored gelato under the tutelage of the aforementioned chef.

Moreover, NomNom Club got first dibs to try and taste how the Carte D’Or Gelato tastes like.

Let’s get straight to the point – it’s creamier and more flavorful than your ordinary ice cream!  I’m not surprise though as most of its ingredients are of quality and sourced from different countries where a particular ingredient is produced properly. Each pint of Carte D’Or gelato is crafted using real cream from Australia.

Carte D’Or Philippines

Interestingly, Carte D’Or choose the Philippines to be it’s launching pad in SouthEast Asia. Yes, we’re the first one in this region to have Carte D’Or Gelato. Perhaps, upon studying the market, they learned how much of a sweets and ice-cream lover the Filipinos are.

Carte D’Or is initially launching 4 flavors:

  • Pistachio
  • Double Dark Chocolate
  • Salted Caramel
  • Choco Hazenut

These four flavors are among the staple flavors of Carte D’Or Gelato in other parts of the world. Come October 2017, expect a new set of new flavors which is bound to be even more exciting.

Does “Double Dark Chocolate” sound delicious to you?

This is where Chef Miko Aspiras plays a bigger part, as well.

Together with the Carte D’Or Gelato Philippine team, Chef Miko Aspiras is currently in the process of crafting special “Filipino” flavors that will use local Philippine ingredients. This would be an interesting twist to Carte D’Or Gelato and having some flavor/s we can call our own.

An exciting development to look forward to. An ‘ube‘ (taro) flavor perhaps? ‘Durian‘ might be stretch though. Both sounds very Filipino to me, nonetheless. 🙂

What do you think the Filipino Carte D’Or Gelato Flavors would be?
