Flavors to Follow: Gelato

This past week I kept seeing the book Eat, Pray, Love all over the front stands at airports since the movie just came out.  I read this book a few months ago and just loved it so I can’t wait to watch the movie!  There probably couldn’t be a more perfect person to play the lead role than Julia Roberts, I love her.  The part that stands out to me in the book is when she goes to Italy and eats at all of these delicious places, especially the gelato o ne, YUM!  So for this weeks flavors to follow, I’ve scoured the web for different ways to eat gelato!

1 eat gelato out of a cup like julia roberts does in eat, pray, love
2 enjoy unique flavors of gelato in a chocolate dipped cone at black dog gelato in chicago, il
3 have a sample of each flavor at gail silverton’s gelato bar in los angeles, ca
4 gelato filled to the brim in a brioche bun seen on ms. adventures of italy
5 one of my favorite chefs from food network, giada de laurentis brings us a delicious chocolate gelato baguettes recipe
6 a recipe for key lime with graham cracker gelato by the talented no so humble pie
7 queen of crafts and cooking martha stewart brings us an ice cream waffle sandwich

how do you like to eat your gelato?  what’s your favorite flavor?

    A lot of people freak out when I say I like “Formaggio Gelato”. It’s cheese flavor! It’s really good, even if it sounds weird.

    OH MY GOSH! I love Gelato! My favorite is a scoop (or two) of chocolate and banana together… or chocolate and raspberry. YUM! <333

    What? Gelato in a burger bun?? Outrageous! Must try it. lol. I loved your last post about keeping up with friends.. after 8 years.. that is a true feat of friendship! You’re so lucky.. and the web makes it all possible. Beautiful pics and thanks for sharing your friendship to the rest of us as well! Have a great weekend!

    I think is the best yet, Sandy. But then again, I’m super obsessed with gelato and different flavors of it. My boyfriend promises me that when we go to Italy to visit his family, I can have gelato twice a day, everyday.
    Have a sweet weekend, darling!

    I just love gelato. I’m not sure what my favourite flavour would be though 🙂 But I could just eat a lot to find out.

    Yeh Julia Roberts is pretty great. I love that photo of her. She looks sweet.

  18. August 21, 2010 / 7:43 am

    All so summery and yummy! I love how it looks when it is all swirly in the pans and lined up for browsing/drooling/choosing!

  19. August 21, 2010 / 9:50 am

    Yummo, girl your making me so hungry right now! I’d just die for a cup/cone/brioche bun of gelato *swoon* no, really I would!


  20. August 21, 2010 / 12:06 pm

    They all look delicious but I’m not sure about the brioche! I like my gelato in a cup in Italy. Any flavor is just great, any time! Hope you are having a gelato-filled weekend! xo

  21. August 22, 2010 / 1:43 am

    Such a lovely group of gelato photos! It’s definitely one of my favorite things! My favorite is the coffee gelato from the Italian Cafe down the street.

    I want to see Eat, Pray, Love too, but I didn’t read the book, so I am thinking I should do that first… What do you think?

  22. August 22, 2010 / 3:44 am

    I now have an intense craving for gelato at 10:45 Hawaii standard time….hmm….where can I find some this late?

  25. August 23, 2010 / 11:35 am
