No you are right Mr Trump, global warming doesn’t exist. So please can you explain to me why in the second week of March I am sitting melting my pretty ass under a blazing sun drinking spritz?!! Would you believe the thermometer has already spiked 23 degrees here in Modena!!
The unusually warm weather got me thinking of another reason why I love Italy. GELATO. No, gelato is not just a fancy word for icecream. It is very much different, here are the basics:
- it is churned more slowly
- contains less air = more yumminess (denser I believe is the technical term)
- is served at a slightly warmer temperature which means a silkier and softer texture
- has a lower percentage of fat than ice cream
And as if Italians weren’t already living the ‘dolce vita’ they also have proclaimed that eating this heaven on a cone is actually good for you.
