Bellina Alimentari Opens in Ponce City Market after product testing & training at PREP!

bellina alimentari PREP Test and Training Kitchens

PREP is proud to have been chosen as the kitchen for recipe development and staff training for the new Bellina Alimentari Italian Market which recently opened in Ponce City Market.

Every day at PREP was an adventure with the wonderful aromas and flavors coming from the Bellina folks, and watching a dedicated group of people work hard to bring a concept to reality in a testing kitchen at PREP.

From Bellina Alimentari’s website: “Our food is inspired by traditional Italian cooking, where the best ingredients are sourced and elevated to the next level, made protagonists and not covered by too many flavors. Everything is cooked daily, made using fresh, seasonal, high quality ingredients, sourced from local, humane, ecological and organic farms as much as possible.”

Bellina’s Market includes a unique assortment of fine Italian imported goods, fresh daily made meal solutions as well as specialty local and Italian cured meats and cheeses. Whether cooking from scratch, entertaining with friends or grabbing a quick meal to go, our market is an opportunity to incorporate food as a way of life into your daily routine.

Bellina Culinary Club is a place to learn, exchange ideas and meet new people having fun. Every month we offer a range of cooking classes, tastings and workshops. Join a pasta making class, enjoy a wine tasting or book the room for a private dinner. The goal is to create a community of food lovers and bring back to the table the conversation of good food.”

Queen of Cream Craft Ice Cream Producer began in a dedicated space at PREP and was classified as the “Littlest Licensed Dairy kitchen” in the state of Georgia.

Queen of Cream Specialty Ice Cream Producer Graduates from PREP

“Queen of Cream was first dreamed of in 2013 by two friends who absolutely love ice cream. One day, over light conversation and ice cream cones, it dawned on us that Atlanta lacked an ice cream shop where the ice cream was  truly made 100% from scratch. Such common practice all over the world, it was nowhere to be found in our beloved city. After much research and the consumption of too much ice cream, we set out to start the only company in Atlanta making it’s ice cream 100% from scratch. In the summer of 2014, Queen of Cream joined PREP and was finally born. We started out with one ice cream cart, one 100 sq ft dedicated kitchen at PREP, and the best ingredients we could get our hands on. Sourcing our dairy locally, and using fresh, real ingredients for flavors, we are able to create some of the best ice cream around. We take ice cream making very, very seriously. No pre-made ice cream mixes here! We take the time and effort to pasteurize our own base.  We are the only shop to do so,  and we would not have it any other way. in September of 2015, we opened the doors to our dream ice cream shop! We added coffee and pastries to the list of offerings, treating both with the same attention to detail, and of course, making everything in house from scratch. A beautiful bright place where homemade ice cream and wonderfully prepared coffee can be enjoyed amongst friends as it has been enjoyed in parlor for years.”
