Salvatore Boccarossa

Born in Naples Italy, Salvatore attended the distinguished Carpigiani Gelato University in Bologna, after 10 years of working in the restaurant industry. In 2013, Salvatore eventually migrated to Canada to be given an opportunity to apprentice with Maestro James. Ultimately Salvatore became a Gelato Master himself, and ran his own gelato lab production with Bella Gelateria.

He is the co-winner of the 2014 Gelato World Tour North American Title that he won along with Maestro James in Austin, Texas. Salvatore is now leading the gelato lab for Uno Gelato. His favourite gelato flavor is Lemon Sorbetto — make sure you try it when you see it on the menu.
