Here are the people behind each of the flavours being created for our event on November 23rd.

Meet James Coleridge who is the Maestro of Bella Gelateria who is creating these Exclusive Premium Flavours -Under the expert tutelage of Italian Champions and Maestros, James apprenticed and honed his skills in the art of gelato in Italy. James received formal training at the Italian Culinary Institute and advanced masters training at Carpigiani’s Gelato University. His passion and commitment to hand crafting the best gelato soon caught the attention of Time Magazine Online. Subsequently, James was selected by a major Italian newspaper for a feature article – a North American gelatière in Italy!
