Madisono's is getting a new look!

Here is Gina doing some photography of our products at Via Vite restaurant.

We are so excited to be working with some of Cincinnati's most talented creatives as we update our look and get some long awaited photography of our products. Gina Weathersby of KiwiStreet Studios and 513{eats} is doing some incredible photography of our gelato, sorbets, Mad*Pops and Tartufos. Lisa Ballard has been incredible helping us develop our marketing and branding materials and lending her illustrations to our campaign. And Eric Hintz (with sound guy Zach Mueller) who are creating a promotional video for us.
Here is Eric shooting video of gelato production.

Madisono's frozen treats available at Findlay Market!

You know you can always pick up a pint of Madiono's Gelato and Sorbet at Madison's Market at Findlay Market in Over-The-Rhine, Cincinnati. But NOW you can get your pints to take home AND eat some Madisono's treats while you're shopping.

Starting this weekend, our Madisono's Gelato Cart will be offering cups of your favorite flavors of gelato and sorbet, Mad*Pops with bright fruity flavors, and our newest addition, the Madisono's Tartufo. Stop by today if you're out and about, and keep looking for the cart to pop up at your favorite events around Cincinnati.

One Night Twelve Kitchens

Madisono's was pleased to participate in the sold out One Night Twelve Kitchens fundraiser this past Sunday, April 21, 2013. One Night Twelve Kitchens is the largest fundraiser for student scholarships at Midwest Culinary Institute. This is our third year joining in with more than 20 of Cincinnati's top restaurants that treats guests to an incredible dinner along with tours of the 12 test kitchens at the Midwest Culinary Institute, to watch their dinner being prepared.

We offered a miniature version of our newest frozen creation, the Madisono's Tartufo. What is a Tartufo, you ask? Our tartufos are Madisono's gelato, covered with melt-in-your-mouth chocolate and a chocolate ganache center. We've been working on these for some time, and I would not be lying to say that we are super excited to get these into your hands. They are delicious!

The typical Madisono's Tartufo is about the size of a cupcake, but since we thought it unfair to tempt guests into filling up before dinner, these are a miniature version. Here are a few pictures showing the process.
