Vibrant: All the Gelato

In Italy, pizza and panini are humble fast foods that can be found on almost every street corner. Whether it’s a chewy slice covered in an ideal combination of salami, olives and porcini, or a sandwich stuffed with the most exquisite tomatoes, mozzarella and basil on earth, a delicious snack is never too far away.

Fortunately for my waistline, the Italian idea of fast food still means fresh, vibrant, nutritious and flavourful, and I could indulge whenever my heart, or rather, stomach desired.

Of course, if I had to choose one Italian specialty to eat all day long, it’d be gelato all the way. Pistacchio ice cream that actually tastes like pistachios, and a simple, but never boring stracciatella, satisfies me every time.

Now if I could just get that husband of mine to share his amerana and frutti di bosco scoops with me, I’d never be forced to choose just 2.

Gelato in Italy is to die for! Have you had a scoop? What are your favourite flavours?

  3. Cantaloupe gelato, in Venice: so good you want to consume an entire gallon in one shot.

  4. I never cared for pistachio gelato until I tasted it in Italy. My knees are weak thinking about it!

    • Pistachio gelato is my absolute favourite! But you’re right…there’s no point getting it anywhere but Italy. It’s not the same elsewhere, is it?

  5. I love pizza! Magherita or capriocas are the ones I go for. As for ice-cream, it’s cookies and cream ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You’re with my hubby. His fave is a simple margherita too! What’s on a caprioca? If you like cookies and cream, you might also enjoy the stracciatella gelato. Milky ice cream with chunks of chocolate. So delish!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • There’s ham, mushroom, artichokes, tomato and mozzarella cheese on it. I love any pizza with mushrooms on them!
