Hillary Tuason - Zelati Dessert Cafe
Zelati Dessert Cafe is the brainchild of Hillary Tuasan who attended the first Kapiti Coast course in 2018. She has been involved in the family business of the Zelati gelato brand from a young age. Zelati got a permanent home in October 2019 on the lively Left Bank Lane just off Cuba street in Wellington CBD and a moving home in a classic ice cream truck that you can catch in the Upper Hutt in Wellington, too.
Offering bespoke gelato and sorbets that have been part of Wellington hospitality scene, Hillary and her team have been creating flavours for the likes of Portlander, Hippopotamus, Pravda, The Chippery and more. "Every one of our flavours is batch-made and hand-packed from start to finish, using only real, premium ingredients at the Zelati Freezeria, our gelato and sorbet lab in Tawa," says Tuason.
