Gelato dates back to frozen desserts served in ancient Rome and Egypt made from snow and ice brought down from mountaintops and preserved below ground.
I buy this brand locally.
This is another one that often appears in the stores.
A recent Forbes Magazine story selected "the best gelato in America." The author dished the well known Grom chain (locations in NYC, Malibu, Tokyo, Paris, and many in Italy) for an unlikely winner of this title - Morano Gelato in New Hanover, New Hampshire. The owner who spent time in Italy working under a master in Sicily, only makes two flavors each week. Funny thing happened, the near-by Ben & Jerry's went out of business (and this is a college town - home to Dartmouth). Competition has a way of doing that.
I know one thing for sure, if we keep having these 100 degree days, I'll keep eating gelato. Happy Tuesday!
