rome diary: gelato
after three days in the amalfi coast, we drove to rome after a brief stop in pompeii. we spent the night in rome with some friends who live in the city. i was a bit maxed out on taking photos of my every meal but i did pull out my camera on one instance just so i had a picture for what i already knew would be my final post on italy.
no italian holiday diary is complete without mention of the ubiquitous gelateria or ice cream shop. i'm sure that those of you who have been to italy have vivid memories of the best gelato in the world. no matter how hard you try, it's really hard to resist the temptation.
gelato is made from milk, sugar and one other key ingredient whether it is fruit, chocolate or nut. sorbetto is the non-diary healthier version but just as delicious. my favourites were hazelnut ice cream and lemon sorbet.
i hope you have enjoyed my italian diaries in the past several weeks. back to cooking and eating in london now.
