Take a culinary journey through the streets of Rome today, as I share some of my favorite moments Eating Out In Italy.
We are taking a brief detour from our regular recipe posting today so that I can share with you my incredible, edible and beautiful trip to Italy. It’s hard to believe that just two weeks ago we were stepping on a plane to fly off on a vacation that has been in the works for quite some time. Italy has always been on the must visit now list – how could it not? Between the ancient ruins, the food, the culture, the food, did I mention the food? It’s a cooks paradise.
- Color: Mint should be white not green, same with pistachio. Pistachio should be a muddy color, like the nut. Banana should look like a banana not bright yellow!
- Height: A lot of places have gelato stacked up high, this means it has air in it. The difference between gelato and ice cream is the lack of extra air whipped into it. Gelato is dense. If you find a place with gelato piled high, walk away.
