Working in the travel industry, I have an opportunity and obligation to see the world. Though most of my travels last only a day or two at a time, I manage to swig an espresso (or three) and get on with the party. Follow me as I shamelessly devour the foods of the land, (over)indulge in the local beer and wine, and discover new cities with old friends.

Gelato in Sicily
Pistachio and almond gelato on brioche
No, that’snot a delicious tuna fish sandwich!
common way to serve gelato in Sicily…. on brioche! At first glimpse, I wasn't sure what to expect of gelato on bread. I figured it would ruin the sweetness and each
bite would taste warm and soggy. Just as I predicted, it's a genius combination that put me into a sugary sweet gelato coma. The Sicilian’s got it right. The
two components complimented each other and I started to wonder why I never
thought of this before. My gelato needs brioche from now on, or I will feel
naked without it! Like peanut butter and jelly. I can’t stress it enough, get on a plane to Sicily and try this phenomenon. NOW!!! It will change your
life, and make you a better person.
