At a very young age Giovanni L. was allowed to stand on as tool to watch his grandfather’s hand-cranked gelato maker as his grandfather spent time and effort producing delicious “Gelato” . Fresh fruit from his own garden, nuts collected in the autumn, fresh herbs, dried berriesand everything the region had to provide were thus made into delicious icecream.
The small Giovanni took much ofthe love, tradition and the original recipes with him in his heart and mind tothe town that has now been his home for many years, Hannover, where he grew up.Italy in his mind’s eye, Grandpa’s recipes in his head and full of drive; thisis how Giovanni L. ice cream parlours gradually came into being in Hannover,Barcelona, Mallorca, Kiel, Hamburg and in a further 100 places through out Europe so far.
Always on the hunt for the new, ultimate gelato creation, Giovanni is not only the name sake and founder, but also the untiring figurehead, quality controller and creator of his ice cream flavours.
