My passion for Ice Cream was first sparked at my Italian friend Paolo’s gelato shop back in Italy in 1989.
After learning from different gelato master chefs in Italy, in 1992 I moved in Jakarta obsessed with bringing the unique Italian gelato in town.
The result-The Café Pisa gelato company- which I opened in Menteng area, Jakarta, supplying finer restaurants with my Italian-inspired ice cream and sorbets. Fifteen years later, in 2007, I sold the company, recipes and all, to resume my education.
Now I am back. Dedicated to producing the very finest ice cream and sorbet with my new brand IL GELATO DI MATTEO.
“The Lab”, offers a fresh, unique spin on the Italian method of artisanal ice cream making. We source the world over for flavors of purity and excellence, when possible sourcing locally and organically. Enjoy!
