The famous Jannettas Gelateria in St Andrews will be delighting visitors with some delicious flavours at the “Savour St Andrews” Chefs Taster Lunch on November 5.
Building on the success of last year’s event, the lunch is a finger buffet style journey involving a number of top chefs and acclaimed local establishments – and part of the proceeds will go towards bursaries for hospitality students at SRUC Elmwood Campus and Fife College.
The lunch will take place in the Hall of Champions at the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa, and visitors will be able to see the chefs at work, ask questions, and hear about their dishes, ingredients, and techniques.
Run by Nicola and Owen Hazel, Jannettas will be providing a choice of vanilla gelato, whisky gelato and bramble sorbet all with either a hot chocolate fudge sauce or freshly made raspberry coulis and a shortbread round.
Other businesses taking part will be the Old Course Hotel itself, The Peat Inn, The Adamson, St Andrews Links, The Hotel du Vin St Andrews, Playfair’s Restaurant, The Seafood Ristorante, The Tayberry St Andrews, Forgan’s, the Scottish Fruit Company, Fisher and Donaldson, The Tailend, The Newport, Rufflets Country House Hotel, The Doll’s House, Bon Accord and Zest Cafe.
The innovative event on November 5 offers tickets for just £5 which can be used to try three dishes, samples of artisan soft drinks, or speciality coffee.
Multiple tickets can be purchased on the day, and booking is not necessary. Children under 12 will be given free tickets for three dishes. The event will run from 12 noon-3pm.
There will also be music from the popular University of St Andrews student-based A Cappella group The Accidentals.
Jannettas – For four generations and almost 110 years, since Nicola’s great grandfather Bennett Jannetta left the small village of Atina near Cassino in Italy in 1908, award-winning Jannettas has been producing and serving up its much-loved premium artisan gelato in St Andrews, a delicious taste of Scotland. Owen and Nicola have been running the business for almost 25 years, using only the finest ingredients, many of which are sourced locally. The gelato is made in the famous South Street premises by skilled gelato makers using traditional Italian artisan machinery. Made with creativity and expertise, the huge range of 54 classic and modern flavours ranges from traditional Vanilla and Chocolate to more unusual flavours such as Elderflower, Peppered Mango and Pistachio and Rose. There is also a wide range of sorbets and frozen yogurts, and a hugely popular cafe. As the fourth generation of one of the oldest retail businesses in St Andrews, they are continuing the Jannetta passion for making and sharing award-winning ice cream with locals as well as national and international visitors
