Meet Eduardo Kreindel, the man behind the delicious fresh gelato and sorbet at Farmer’s Market at Tufts. I had a cup with half mango sorbet which was packed with delicious cool mango taste and half dark chocolate with hazelnuts. Absolutely mouth-watering. Eduardo greeted people with a warm smile and offered samples of his gelatos. After one taste, most students could not resist a cup. Everyone seemed extremely happy with their desserts. I took my digital tape recorder along to hear the stories behind the foods brought today. Here is Eduardo’s story:
“Hi, my name is an Eduardo Kreindel. I am originally from Argentina. I came to live in this country 25 years ago. By trade, I am an architect. I was working as an architect for 28 years and three years ago I decided to go into the gelato and sorbet business. Presently, I have a company called Giovanna Gelato and we manufacture our products in Newton so we are local in the Boston Area. All of our products are made to order, that means they are fresh in small batches. We don’t add any artificial color, flavors or preservatives. All of the gelatos are of a very low fat content. They are made of milk and not cream and they also have a very low ice content in comparison to ice cream so they have a much smoother composition. We use local fruits as much as possible and we do not use any frozen purees. We use the real fruit. We deliver our products in 24 to 72 hours so we do a very quick turn-around so people will have the freshest product by us.”
It was particularly fitting for Arielle, who graduated last year and is now working on her Master’s Degree in Public Health at the Tufts University School of Medicine, to be at the market. As a senior working on her internship with dining services last year, Arielle sparked the idea and make the first on-campus Farmer’s Market happen last year and has been involved ever since.
