I’ve been back from Italy for a whole week now, and I still can’t get the food we ate on that trip off my mind. There really is nothing like it. I’ve always been a sucker for good Italian food, so my expectations were obviously pretty high about eating in Italy. Unlike Paris where we left generally unimpressed with the cuisine, I’ve been scheming about ways to re-create some of the best dishes I had ever since getting home.
I had gelato every single day I was in Italy, and nothing was as amazing as the gelato alla cannella we had at Giolittis in Rome. Andy and I both were obsessed with it and had it every day we were there. It was oh so creamy, and was bursting with cinnamon flavor. I tried my hand at finding an at-home version, and I was SO happy with how this turned out.
