I like weird food. I pretty much always want to try new weird combinations of things. Honestly, I think it sorta frustrates my family around the holidays, maybe not so much my sister but definitely the rest of my family. The probably spend hours wondering: why can’t we just have normal food for Christmas? Why are there apples in the potatoes au gratin?
But really, who wants to eat boring things?
The same should be true for gelato. A few years ago, I went to this ice cream place in Berkeley called Sketch (it’s on 4th street in case you’re in the area and want to visit) and had the most amazing fig balsamic ice cream. I’ve been obsessed with unusual ice cream flavors ever since.
This weekend some friends and I went to a gelato place, Gelateria del Teatro with the promise of unusual flavors. With less than a month left in Italy, it’s time to eat some delicious gelato.
We take our gelato very seriously!
They delivered! I got three flavors: White Chocolate Basil, Ricotta Fig with Almonds and Orange Sacher (chocolate apricot?).
Oh my, so good. Totally worth it! The white chocolate basil tasted like real basil that had been sweetened, not really like white chocolate. It was pretty delicious and fresh!
Kyla got some crazy flavors too but sadly I don’t remember which ones. Even more sadly, the pictures of Lis and Nancy turned out wayyyy to dark.
My parents are visiting next week, I can’t wait to go back because I’m dying to try the Raspberry Sage flavor. Then again, maybe I should stick to traditional flavors with them…
