Is it spring? 1 Gelato

Look at how dark the chocolate gelato is!

While buying some cheese from L’Antica Latteria (more information coming soon) I was drawn to the display cabinet that has been empty of gelato since the cold weather set in during November.  Yes! It must be spring, there was a small selection of the classic flavours of gelato that are sold here.  Dark, dark chocolate, stracciatella, ricotta e cannella (cinnamon), hazelnut,  crema; later will come the seasonal fruit ices.

It must be said that spring is not actually here yet, a very cold weekend has been forecast with a possibility of snow! But between the cold days there are times when it really does feel like spring is here, warm enough to be outside without a coat, to sit at a table in the sun to eat lunch and, yes, eat a gelato when you went into the shop to buy ricotta!  If you’re really feeling hungry, you can have the gelato in a sweet roll (called a Maritozzi), this is common in Sicilia but quite unusual for the rest of Italy.

  1. Sooo good! Gelato makes everyone expect some warm weather, it is so true (although it did snow yesterday!!)

    I loved this article, and I suggest to try Polozzi’s gelato too, I adore it myself!

    Ciao ciao

  2. Yes, I like Polozzi’s gelato too. Has you also tried their pistacchio mousse with brutti ma buoni base – simply the best!
