Desserts by Cremeria De Luca to try at Ferragosto before you die

Cremeria De Luca gelato burger

When it comes to Italian treats in Sydney, there’s really only one name to know.

Cremeria De Luca is the family owned and operated – in true Italian style – Italian gelato place over in Five Dock, NSW that does so much more than gelato.

They’ve quickly moved from the favourite Sicilian treat to a whole lot of everything else, making a quick name and loyal following for themselves with their now renowned gelato brioche burger, which, yes, is every bit as devilishly good as it reads.

This Sunday at the City of Canada Bay’s annual Italian street fair, Ferragosto, Cremeria De Luca will be serving-up its gelato from an age old recipe, gelato brioche burgers,

It’s the national Italian holiday that celebrates the middle of summer, so it only makes sense for you to head along armed with nothing but cash, an empty stomach and an open mind as you eat, drink, spend and enjoy yourself silly around the six-hour-long festival.

From 10am to 4pm, performances, cooking demonstrations, vintage Italian cars like Ferraris, Fiats and Alfas, kids’ activities and food stalls will line the streets.

Sagra della Granita: Canada Bay Council will be working together with Cremeria De Luca to bring the first Sagra della Granita, a stand dedicated to celebrate the wonderful Sicilian Granita in all its glory. There will be a degustation of granitas available at stand 23-24 served all day.

Arancini everywhere: They’ll be serving savoury traditional Sicilian arancini, fried iris sweet buns filled with Nutella, ricotta, custard and chocolate at Stand 27 in front of their shop.

Try the gelato burger: Available in store on the corner of Ramsay Road and First Avenue with their highly sought-after Gelato, Italian hot chocolates, coffee and cannoli.
