Gelato–my favorite Italian Dessert

When in Rome.....do as the Romans do!
On my recent trip to Italy, I finally got to try Gelato and it is every bit as good as they say it is!

What exactly is Gelato?  It is Italy’s version of ice cream, with three major differences:
  • Gelato has less butterfat than ice cream. 
  • It is served 10 to 15 degrees warmer than ice cream.
  • Not as much air is whipped into the mixture (gelato contains about 25 to 30 percent air, while ice cream can contain as much as 50 percent air)
Result – amazing creamy taste that will leave you wanting to try a new flavor each day.  Guess what else?  You get to pick up to two flavors!
