Have you ever wondered what the secret behind the yumminess of Bono Gelato is?

We asked Zarah Manikan, Chief R&D and Product Officer of Bono Gelato, how to make the best gelato in town. Bono is derived from “BUONO”, which means GOOD in Italian, and Gelato is derived from the Latin word “GELATUS” which means FROZEN.

Here’s our gelato-making experience at Bono Gelato…
