The kids from Travis Elementary has a special treat last week during their field trip to the Dallas Farmer’s Market for the Days of Taste Program. Days of Taste is a food exploration program sponsored by the American Institute of Wine and Food. The program teaches the kids how food gets from the farm to the table. Pacuigo Gelato producer/owner Cristiana Ginatta spent the morning with the kids telling the tales of gelato making. The kids were enthralled with their science teacher du jour as she discussed sugar, anti freezing properties, the importance of using real ingredients and the art of gelato making.
Of course, no science experiment would be complete without the finished product and Cristiana delivered. See below for a “sample” of the tasting portions for the kids.
The final element of the experiment was when Cristiana’s science and samples elevated her to “Rock Star” status as determined by the kids. The day culminated with Ms. Ginatta’s autograph appearing on most everyone’s t-shirt! Success!
