Parry Sohi is serving up some enticing product with his artisan gelato food truck venture, which goes by the name of Nani's Gelato, meaning "grandmother" in Punjabi. Sohi wants to replicate the precision and care that his own grandma put into the food she made. That means a handcrafted, meticulous commitment to freshness, high-quality ingredients, and of course, plenty of love!
Their gelato is handcrafted daily and offers vegan options. Nani's usually parks at Berczy Park between Wellington and Front, east of Yonge on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It can also be found at Trinity Bellwoods on the weekends.
Nani's stays true to popular gelato flavours but also presents some delicious Indian flavours for those who want to try something different. Some of the eye-catching ones include pistachio infused with cardamom, carrot almond, pears and cream, and mango cardamom, to name a few.
"I feel I have a unique product to offer, I'm using ingredients that are common in Indian cooking and I'm pulling from memories of Indian desserts I had growing up," Sohi told the CBC.
Nani’s makes their our own gelato base using a pasteurization machine from Italy which is specifically designed for producing gelato. They have their own commercial commissary kitchen where they make their gelato bases daily.
Nani’s doesn't use artificial colourings or powders, and all the gelato is freshly made in small batches every single day. Such attention to detail and integrity! Grandmas all over the world would approve.
