XIN WAN - Proprietor
Gelateria D’Orcia - Nanjing, China
Website Coming Soon
Xin Wang, an automotive engineer from China has been a lover of all things Italian for many years. After visiting the Ferrari factory in Maranello several times and having tasted authentic Italian gelato, he decided to make a drastic change in his career and respond to a growing demand for Italian food products in China. His goal was to open an authentic artisan gelateria in Nanjing, his home town.
He had already come to Italy to take part in what he calls a ‘pseudo’ artisan gelato making course with a large industrial gelato company, but went home disappointed due the fact that he hadn’t learnt how to make the creamed and sorbet bases from scratch and was obliged to use the company’s ready-made bases (which had been adapted to the Asian market) and machines.
