MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
Armando and Gabriella take the art of chocolate to the next level in their chocolate and gelato shops in Sicily. The couple shares their journey, from falling in love at a bakery to the inspirations for some of their most extraordinary desserts.
Armando Siracusano was born in Catania, Italy. Inspired by his grandmother’s fresh-baked bread, he became a baker by the age of 15. One day, Gabriella Comis walked into the bakery where Armando worked, and it was love at first sight. But it wasn’t happily ever after quite yet. With her father dead set against their relationship, the young couple ran away together. Soon after, Armando used his dough to buy his first bakery—later uncovering the business’s unsavory past connection to the mafia. After a series of continuing adventures, Armando eventually established himself as a bona fide baker. Then, one fateful day he tasted pure chocolate and fell in love with the milky confection. From that moment forward, he focused on becoming a chocolatier and gelato maker, studying with the best in the world. Through his pastry skills and business acumen, their shop, Cioccolato e Gelato, became an instant success and is renowned as one of the best artisan confectionary shops in all of Sicily.
