The Cooking School of the Old Taverna Sorrentina was born from the experience of 3 generations of our family who worked in the art of ice cream making. From 1860 the Gargiulo family have been leaders in the field of Ice Cream production.
Our family story was born from milk, having always started with the very best cows thereby producing the perfect raw materials. To make the very finest products we use only the best Italian ingredients: pistachio from Etna, hazelnuts from Piemonte, coffee from Naples, vanilla from Bourbon etc. These tastes remain the same generation after generation, ensuring the production of the very best home made ice cream.
OUR SORBETS The majority of fruit we use is produced at our farm in Massa Lubrense, where we try to grow them organically and locally km 0.Sorrento is world famous for its citrus fruits, lemons & oranges. These are picked every morning by my parents and freshly squeezed as soon as possible.
In the typical production of the Sorrintine Peninsula Granita/Slush is made from local citrus fruits, especially lemons, which prove to be the most popular. From only 3 ingredients, water, sugar and juice, you can easily make this at home!
