As my search for a job hasn't been going too well (1 month so far and not even an interview!) I started considering alternative means of making a living, one of my ideas was to rent a stall at the local market and sell vegan gelato there - marketted of course as "healthy alternative to ice cream" with just a small "suitable for vegans" label somewhere.
Anyway, as odd as this sounds I've never actually tried gelato nor have I tried any kind of veganised ice cream products for that matter so this is where you come in.
Firstly: Do you think that there's any chance of success? Would you buy one if you were passing through the market? Do you think any omnis would be interested by the health aspect or just put off by the lack of dairy?
Secondly: Do you have any ideas where I could find good recipes, or ways of emulating what happens inside a 'gelato maker' without having to buy one first? I don't mind investing a bit, as long as I know that I'll be able to produce a good product!
Thirdly: Any other ideas? I really like the idea of having a little vegan friendly stall that fills another niche as to not go out of business - I don't care about making bundles of cash and I'd likely give a percentage of profits to local animal rescues.
edit: Gelato is quite rare here, I'm fairly sure that there's no where to get even 'normal' gelato in the entire city.
