eataly gelato summer scoop

A new gelato pop-up hits Yorkville

Top Toronto gelaterias are popping up at the Italian shopping and dining hub every month this summer

Is there any more refreshing summertime treat than a fresh scoop of gelato? This summer, Eataly is helping Toronto cool down with some sweet new gelato flavours as part of its Summer Scoop Series.

This program will see the Italian eatery working with a new Toronto gelato-maker every month from June through September. The collaborations will result in one-of-a-kind flavours, made using signature ingredients from each of the shops combined with products sourced from Eataly’s marketplace.

The Summer Scoop Series was inspired by Toronto’s love for the tasty treat. After the pandemic-related challenges faced by the foodservice industry over the past year, the program aims to celebrate the food community and the wonderful gelato already found across the city.

Throughout the month of June, Eataly is partnering with Dundas West’s Death in Venice. The first featured flavour is the Cassata, which features Death in Venice’s signature ricotta base layered with Marsala-soaked sponge cake, Fagola Fabbri preserved strawberries and candied oranges. The flavour is named for the traditional Sicilian dessert that inspired Death in Venice’s owner on his travels around the idyllic Italian island.

Next month, Eataly will collaborate with Nani’s Gelato, which specializes in Asian and Indian-inspired flavours made daily from scratch. August will feature a partnership with Cheese Boutique’s new café and gelateria, CB Bottega. You’ll have to wait until later in the summer to find out what creative flavours the upcoming gelato-makers come up with for the series.

The innovative flavours are available by the scoop from Eatery’s gelato cart at 55 Bloor Street West.
