Gerry Scotti is hunting for an ice cream thief – Italian cuisine reinvented by Gordon Ramsay

La Cucina Italiana


Gerry Scotti became a detective out of greed: he is the protagonist of a web series again in which he has the task of unmasking an ice cream thief. To be precise, the guest who, after a dinner at his house, takes away the last remaining one. Who will be among Lorella Cuccarini, Giovanni Muciaccia, Rovazzi, Shamzy, UfoZero2 and Anna Folzi? They are the other protagonists of “Who stole Grandpa’s last Cup?”, which will be broadcast on the Instagram profile @coppadelnonno_official. The host had a lot of fun, he tells us about it in this interview:

Interview with Gerry Scotti

How did this new adventure go?
«Adventures are always beautiful and when they are unexpected they are even more welcome. You do them with a smile of amazement on your lips and this adventure is no different, it was very stimulating.”

Why do you think he was chosen as the main character of this ironic “mystery”?
«The Grandfather’s Cup was the protagonist of my childhood, it is one of the most loved and appreciated symbols of my afternoons. It reminds me of being with family, going to the dairy with my mother. I remember that it gave us kids a sense of maturity and emancipation, because it was the first taste as adults that we were given at a young age: a cup of coffee, the drink of adults. Probably this sense of amazement mixed with gratification has never left me and I was a perfect protagonist for this part.”

If I say “ice cream” what comes to mind? Is he greedy for it? Is this his sin of gluttony?
«It’s not my indulgence par excellence, but I must admit that I have always been a fan of ice cream, ever since I was a boy. When, due to logistics problems and the lack of distribution of refrigerators, ice cream was a product linked to spring/summer, I was convinced that it was instead suitable for every season. And I probably wasn’t the only one who thought this because then the market adapted to consumer demand, so much so that now it is not uncommon to consume it even in winter. We can say that ice cream has finally taken the place it deserved.”

We often see her walking with her grandchildren: is eating ice cream a ritual for you too?
«For me ice cream was a ritual, a gratification. The new generations are so surrounded by stimuli and proposals that perhaps they get a little confused. But I’m telling you as a grandfather: seeing my granddaughter’s face and shirt all dirty with ice cream is priceless.”
