Budapest, Hungary, 29.03.2018
• "Sárgabarackos Sajttorta" (Apricot cheesecake) by Karl Zsolt from Karl Cukrászda in Dunaharaszti, Hungary, has been selected among the competing flavors by a jury composed of experts and journalists.
• The gelato artisan goes on to the next step of the Gelato Festival World Masters 2021, the world championship in search of the best gelato flavors in the 5 continents.

Budapest, 27 March 2018 – Gelato Festival Challenge continues its journey around the world making a stop in Budapest on March 26th where 17 Hungarian gelato artisans took part in the sweetest competition of the year hosted by Bulfoni, Carpigiani distributor for Hungary. The winning flavor is “Sárgabarackos Sajttorta” (Apricot cheesecake) by Karl Zsolt from Karl Cukrászda in Dunaharaszti, Hungary, a gelato with an apricot compote made by the artisan himself and a biscuit made with almond flour and brown sugar.

The selected gelato artisan goes on to the European Finals of Gelato Festival scheduled for 2020 in Italy at the Carpigiani Gelato University headquarters. Flavor, structure, creativity and presentation are the four parameters used for the evaluation, highlighting the choice of ingredients, the craftsmanship in elaborating the recipe and the visual impact of the gelato (see below the full list of participants).

The jury also awarded the “Next Generation” prize to the best gelato artisan under 30, which went to “Amore Siciliano” by Somogyi Renáta from Bringatanya Fagyizó in Gyenesdiás. The young artisan will participate in the Next Generation Finale to be held in Florence in 2019, where the best gelato artisan under 30 will be selected to take part in the 2021 World Finale of the Gelato Festival World Masters.

Moreover, due to its particular choice of ingredients, the following flavor received a Special mention for Creativity: “Ricotta della Nonna” (Gelato with Ricotta cheese & Saffron) by Nagy László from Marcipán Cukrászda in Dunaföldvár.

The jury was composed of:

  1. Selmeczi László, CEO of Hungarian Confectioners National Association
  2. Pataki Ádám, Pastry Chef of Pastry Pataki, Érd
  3. Erdélyi Balázs, Pastry Chef of Pastry FRER, Budapest
  4. Fiala Borcsa, Journalist, deputy editor-in-chief
  5. Gazdag Nóra, magazine editor of Landra

Having made its 2010 debut in Florence inspired by the first gelato recipe by the versatile architect Bernardo Buontalenti in 1559, Gelato Festival has continued to spread artisan gelato culture for nine consecutive years. From its inception, Gelato Festival has spread through Italy and next through Europe and, since 2017, in the United States. Gelato Festival will continue to promote gelato culture and appreciation throughout the globe with its road to the world championship of Gelato Festival World Masters 2021.
