Get the scoop on the best icy treats Italy has to offer at this weekend of eating in Old Spitalfields Market. Gelatieri (ice cream pros) from all over Italy will be serving up their best and most exciting flavours, and your job is to eat as many as you can in order to vote for your favourite. Buy a ‘gelato card’ in advance from the Gelato Festival websitefor £10 to get five scoops, plus one extra when you vote. The card also allows access to the Gelato Lab, where you can watch masterclasses and learn the tricks of the trade. If you don’t think you can manage five portions (or you’re worrying that it won’t be enough) then don’t panic – individual scoops will be available to buy on the day. Just don’t go too fast: there’s no quick cure for brain freeze.
