Gelato in Sicily

Pistachio and almond gelato on brioche

No, that’s not a delicious tuna fish sandwich!

It’s the 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.
