Gelato - need

Rella | May 19, 2012 09:21 AM

I can't find too much Gelato information on Chowhound, so I'm wondering if anyone makes Gelato vs. ice cream.

It seems to me from this book, that Gelato can be quite an art and there is a lot to know about it making it.
Making Artisan Gelato: 45 Recipes and Techniques for Crafting Flavor-Infused Gelato and Sorbet at Home

this book's reviews on Amazon,
The Perfect Scoop David Lebovitz

seem to me to be more about recipes with all their additions/fillers/toppings on a few recipes. IOW similar to a few pizza dough recipes and many toppings.

I have made ice cream in this ice cream maker and like it a lot.
I know that it says that it says Gelato, but am not sure if it is actually an ice cream maker dedicated to gelato, and wondering if anyone has had any experience with making gelato who want to give me some advice for beginners. I know there a lot of websites with advice, but I'd like to hear from anyone on chowhound who's done it!

Sorry, couldn't edit the title, should be: Gelato - Need Beginner Advice.
