Mimmo's Gourmet Gelato: A Story of Passion and Perseverance.

Samso Insight Episode 111 is with Mimmo, founder of Mimmo's Gourmet Gelato. This Samso Insight is all about the inner passion of business.

Today we look at the Passion and Perseverance that are built into those that pursue the life of an entrepreneur. It is not so much about seeking glory but about the fulfilment of the passion that dwells deep.

Tony Goode brings us a riveting story, that on the surface, perhaps bears no interest to the business community, apart from the delicious thought of Gelato, but when you sit back and listen, one will feel all the essence of what it takes to follow your passion.

The story of Mimmo's Gourmet Gelato is more than the sweet taste of Gelato. It is about the realisation of one man's dream, and the understanding of what drives a person to showcase his dream and the confidence to share it.

As Tony dives into the conversation, we see the light that is burning bright in Mimmo. Many have tasted the products and I have seen with my own eyes, the genuine appreciation of his art. I have personally tasted Mimmo's Gelato and I will say that the taste is good as it is, but when you know the hard work that has gone into it with his passion, it tastes even better.

Mimmo talks about wanting to bring his passion to the general public and sharing what he loves with the new generation. He wants his legacy to be loved and then carried on for those that have not experienced it. When you listen and watch Mimmo's interview, there is no doubt as to his sincerity in wanting the new generation to carry on the tradition of making and appreciating Gelato in its original form.

What is the difference between Gelato and Ice Cream?

The word “gelato” is simply the Italian word for ice cream, derived from the Latin word “gelātus” (meaning frozen).

Gelato v.s. Ice Cream

Gelato contains less ‘air’ than ice cream giving it a much richer flavour, whilst making it dense, fluid and creamy.

BUT, gelato is actually different from the traditional recipe of ice cream because it is lighter, having a lower butterfat content than traditional ice cream. Generally, gelato uses more milk rather than cream. Ice cream often uses egg yolks, whereas gelato does not.

To put some percentages on it, gelato typically contains 4-8% fat, versus the 14-16% found in ice cream.

Finally, gelato is stored and then served at a higher temperature compared to ice cream.
