Stracciatella ice cream – make a famous masterpiece at home

Stracciatella ice cream is great for those who are not fans of pure chocolate ice cream, but still do not want to miss something chocolate in it. Stracciatella ice cream contains pieces of bitter chocolate, which gives it a fantastic taste and appearance.

It was originally created in Bergamo, northern Italy, at the Ristorante La Marianna in 1961. It was inspired by stracciatella soup, made from egg and broth, which is popular around Rome. It is one of the most renowned Italian gelato flavours.

Today, stracciatella is one of the most popular ice cream varieties in the world.
