25 to 28 October, 2022 – Singapore Expo
Carpigiani, the Italian company specialising in the production of machines for gelato, pastry and catering, will be among the protagonists at FHA Ho.Re.Ca. 2022 (25-28 October in Singapore), the most important industry trade fair in Asia.
Among the events not to be missed at the company's stand (Hall 3, booth 3B3-01) are meetings with two pastry stars. On 25 and 26 October, the appointment is with Otto Tay, pastry chef and member of the Malaysia team that won the gold medal at the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie in Lyon in 2019. On 27 October, center stage will be taken by pastry chef Justin Lee, owner of JL Dessert Bar in Seoul and star on the culinary scene in South Korea. The cooking shows will be introduced by Alessandro Racca, pastry chef and Carpigiani Gelato University Instructor.
Carpigiani will also be sponsoring the two main competitions scheduled for this 2022 edition of FHA Ho.Re.Ca.: the Asian Gelato Cup, a team competition dedicated to gelato making that will select the teams that will participate in the Gelato World Cup in 2024 in Italy; and the Asian Pastry Cup, a team competition dedicated to pastry making that will proclaim the national teams that will compete in the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie scheduled for 2023 in France.
The technological innovations dedicated to the world of gelato and ice cream
A large area of the booth will be dedicated to Synthesis 2, the new modular system for producing, storing, and serving gelato in a single solution directly in front of customers and without interrupting the cold chain.
The base module consists of an elegant station complete with two independent cylinders that can pasteurize and freeze a mix and statically store the gelato produced. Moreover, it is possible to program the optimal storage temperature for each cylinder. Thanks to the LCD display with pre-installed programs and patented Hard-O-Tronic consistency control, you can constantly monitor the values of the programmed consistency and the gelato being frozen. It is always possible to make changes using the display controls to produce a perfect gelato according to the requirements of the recipe.
Synthesis 2 can be easily integrated into any environment without costly renovations or the need for a large production space: installation is facilitated by the wheels that allow the machine to be moved easily and by the single-phase electrical connection. Moreover, it is possible to combine multiple two-cylinder base modules to create an ice cream parlor that meets the needs of the entrepreneur.
Perfect for gelato and pastry, the compact ReadyChef countertop machine is designed for professional pastry shops and restaurants, and in 58 cm incorporates all the technology needed to add gelato to the menu and act as a personalized assistant for many pastry and chocolate specialties. It has 34 different programs ranging from the production of creams to the tempering of chocolate, the preparation of gelato, slushes and cremolatas. Six cycles are dedicated to the production of sauces and toppings. Cleaning is made easier by a special program that saves a lot of time in the kitchen and production space
Carpigiani for the world of pastry
In the area dedicated to the world of pastry, there will be the new Pastochef RTL-I, the latest generation of one of Carpigiani's most popular pastry technologies, the Pastochef RTL.
The 2022 version of the machine has an inverter that can vary the speed of processing to improve mixes’ texture and structure. It will be available in three versions: Pastochef 18 RTL-I, Pastochef 32 RTL-I and Pastochef 55 RTL-I, each having a different production capacity. The pastry machine has 18 different pastry programs, 9 chocolate programs, 8 special programs for desserts, 7 savory programs and 4 gelato programs to pasteurize the mixes and age them.
The entire Pastochef RTL range, with and without inverter, is designed to automate all recipes that require time and manual effort. Heating and cooling are carried out in a “dry bain-marie”, thus avoiding potential incrustations on the cylinder’s surface and guaranteeing heat exchange, performance, and energy consumption. The display guides the operator, showing the production phases, temperatures, and suggestions for adding ingredients.
Visitors will also see the new Lab-O-Chef 5 multifunction machine in operation, currently only available in a limited edition. This countertop machine was designed to be the perfect companion for pastry chefs and chefs who can use it to produce creams, ganache, jams, béchamel, and other hot and cold specialties with consistent results over time. Its use is simplified by a control panel with touchscreen technology allowing access to 66 preset programs and the creation of new custom programs, not to mention monitoring all stages of production. A world of recipes at your fingertips! In fact, the machine comes pre-loaded with 21 pastry programs, 8 for chocolate, 6 for topping sauces, and 14 for savory foods and specialties. Moreover, the machine turns into a countertop batch freezer for artisanal gelato with 15 pre-installed programs, allowing chefs and pastry chefs to expand their menu by adding delicious sub-zero creations.
Focus on soft serve gelato and gelato shake
One of the latest technology for soft serve gelato is the 243 T SP, a two-flavor machine plus mix and has two independent 5-or 8-liter tanks. It can be equipped with pump or gravity dispensing systems depending on the customer’s needs. This way it can easily manage mixes of different viscosity and give life to new creative combinations.
Part of the booth will be dedicated to shakes, the delicious mixes of soft gelato, sauces, toppings, and decorations that are trending in Asia and the United States and in quick service restaurants around the world. There are three machines in the line: the countertop 191 K SP, the floor-standing K Shake SP, and the new 161 K SP. The latter has an ergonomic, elegant design that, thanks to its compact size, fits perfectly on the counter next to other equipment. The dispenser is gravity fed and the tank has a total capacity of 18 liters. It’s perfect for those who have little space and a low demand and are looking for a solution that’s quick to install and easy to clean. All three shake machines are equipped with the H-O-T system that allows you to set the desired consistency for creamier or thicker shakes.
