Eat This Now: GELATO


Consider this a bribe...

A scoop of gelato (vanilla, hazelnut, fior di latte, caramel, and pistachio pictured here work amazingly well) + a drizzle of the best extra-virgin olive oil you can get your hands on + a pinch of flaky sea salt = unusal sounding but unbelievably good.


Go on. I dare you to taste and not like such a cold treat on 100 degree days (at least where I live). Ponder the odd complexities of simple ingredients and the impending brain freeze while I work on some new posts, fish for my friend's lime curd recipe, bother my genius graphic design friend for the complete re-design and logo, and work on some more food shots like this sexy number above with my photographer pal. In other words: keep reading. I'm back.

*NOTE: I don't blame you if you don't want to read me anymore. But...wasn't that gelato good?
