Jannettas Opens Its Doors To St Andrews Food and Drink Festival


Some people say the three main reasons people visit St Andrews are to enjoy its award-winning beaches, golf and ice-cream.

Now, visitors will be able to see how Jannettas Gelateria’s ice-cream is made at a special gelato session during St Andrews Food and Drink Festival. The free event will be held from 7-9pm on Saturday 21 November 2015.

When Bennett Jannetta arrived from Italy nearly 100 years ago, there was only vanilla on offer. Now, the fourth generation of the family, led by Owen Hazel and his wife Nicola, is providing 54 flavours of award winning traditional ice cream, including frozen yogurts and sorbets.

Owen commented, “Having enjoyed such a long and successful presence in the town, we were delighted to be asked to take part in St Andrews Food and Drink Festival.  Come and hear about the family’s history, see a demonstration and, more importantly, taste the gelato!”

The Jannettas event is free but space will be limited – please phone 01334 473285 to book, or pop into Jannettas Gelateria, South Street, St Andrews, which is open between 9am and 10pm, seven days a week.

St Andrews Food and Drink Festival is hosting almost 60 events throughout November, including the showcase dinner at The Fairmont on Friday 20 November 2015.  For more information, visit www.StAndrews4You.co.uk.
