The many joys of gelato..

Gelato is one of the most anticipated and fondly remembered food treats in all of Italy.
My first experience in Rome sealed the deal for me, and on that first trip to Italy my goal was to have gelato every day, three times a day. It wasn’t difficult to find quality and quantity on nearly every corner. Mission accomplished, and a lifelong love of gelato was born.
People ask about the difference between gelato and ice cream, and here they are…
*It has a lower percentage of fat than ice cream, allowing the main flavor ingredient to shine through.
*It is churned at a slower rate, which incorporates less air, leaving the gelato denser than ice cream. Also….
*While both contain cream, milk and sugar..authentic gelato doesn’t use egg yolks, which are a common ingredient in ice cream.
Most gelato you will find will be decorated and very colorful.. but don’t shy away from those less colorful, artisanal varieties. They are often the very best, with natural flavors and nothing artificial..
A favorite memory in the making….
