It would be glib and inaccurate to proclaim, for the purposes of this story, “summer’s here and so is ice-cream season”.
Truth is, we eat the stuff all year round and even when the weather is at its most dismal.
But there’s two new kids on the block in the west and we really feel obliged – haha, our sort of obligation! – to give them a spin.
Gelati and/or ice cream?
See here for a handy explanation of the difference.
But we never get too technical, snobby or hipster about it …
Sourdough Kitchen – long-running and beloved community fixture, source of regular work commute coffees as well as the occasional sandwich and more – and now doing their very own gelati line-up.
Bennie is well pleased with his single scoop cone of chocolate gelati ($4).
It’s soft in the gelati way, with much of it oozing down the cone – so I have no way of gauging value for money in terms of serving size.
There’s no such problems with my cup scoop of Christmas mince pie (top photograph).
This is sensational – a bit like rum-and-raisin or cassata, with plenty of fruit and texture.
It makes me smile.
