Vegan Gelato


Pistachio gelato. Not really a gelato as there is no dairy here; really a sorbet. It is an emulsion of pistachio oil and water in the exact proportions found in heavy cream (36% fat/64% water). The mouth feel is exactly like that of ice cream... But this is vegan. 
Often while steeping pistachios into cream you have to use a very large amount to get the flavor, and then you strain the pistachios out and throw them away. Such a waste. In this case there is no waste and a lot of flavor. @modcuisine

  1. Hey Chef,

    I've been a big fan of your blog for some time now. This post was really intriguing. How did you emulsify the nut oil with the water? Did you add anything else? Thanks!
