You Can Now Enjoy World's Best Ice Cream in Budapest
The federation of Italian ice cream makers have chosen a Hungarian to top the 2024 Gelato Festival World Rankings, organisers announced at a press conference in Rome.

Ádám Fazekas, of Budapest’s 'Fazekas confectionery', had earlier won the Gelato Festival World Masters competition in 2021 and was second in the Ice Cream World Rankings in 2022.

At the press conference, the Hungarian master’s raspberry-pistachio ice cream was offered to the participants, but it had been several of his compositions that earned him first place in the competition.

The international competition has been organised annually since 2011, and its jury of several hundred experts have tasted creations by over 8,000 ice cream makers since the beginning.

Over 1,200 contestants attended the event this year, coming from Europe, North America, Africa, and Asia.

The festival explains its ranking system as follows:

‘The Gelato Festival World Ranking is the definitive world ranking of the best artisanal gelato chefs around the globe.

Updated annually, this list ranks all of the gelato artisans who have competed in our Gelato Festival tournaments since 2011, as well as in the Gelato World Tour, who are our partners. Today, our growing community includes more than 1,000 gelato artisans worldwide.’
