It’s a multicultural twist on an Aussie favourite that’s sure to get the tastebuds tingling this Australia Day.
Those celebrating the national day in Brisbane will have the chance to cool down after a couple of snags and beers – with a Vegemite gelato.
Italian-trained Gherardo Deflorian and his partner Lei Hua, of Brisbane’s Gelateria Cremona, concocted the unique ice cream flavour for lovers of the Australian icon.
“I thought we’d do something different for Australia Day and so I was thinking about maybe lamington, but Vegemite has to be more controversial,” Mr Deflorian told AAP.
“When I came to Australia there’s so many more ingredients than there were in Italy so I like to keep my job a bit more fun, a bit more interesting so I try new things.
“Everything can be transformed into a gelato.”
