Homemade by Bruno's Gelateria and Pasta-Making Opening in South Philly
Chef Bruno will not only be open to the public, but it will also serve as a space for group pasta-making classes and other private culinary events. Homemade by Bruno will feature a custom pasta counter that can accommodate up to eight people, with additional counter space to seat another eight.
Bruno's gelato has been featured at Ember & Ash (pig's blood gelato), Kalaya Thai Kitchen as push-pops, and several other Philadelphia-area businesses. Gelato will eventually be available as pre-made cups, pints, and push-pops. Additionally, Bruno will bring in several new restaurants to collaborate and make custom flavors and concepts. She plans on offering custom "gelato cakes" in various sizes.
Chef Janine Bruno focuses on Southern Italian cooking, featuring authentic traditions of the culture and the cuisine. She never uses machines, and all pasta is made by hand, from scratch, using the highest quality ingredients sourced from Italy. She will host pasta-making classes for the past three years at her new space, a massive part of her brand.
