It starts with a little gelato

You will never get fat from eating too much gelato. That isn’t even an issue, because your body will welcome it and want more no matter how much gelato you eat. The health food fanatics can sharpen their pitchforks and accuse me of treason if they like, but I speak the truth.

Whether it be fragola, baci, stracciatella, melon, pineapple, you must have it in Italy. Preferably in the tiny step-up-one-stair-and-order place in Trastevere, Rome, which can easily by reached walking down the Tiber until you hit a small plaza occasionally occupied by a farmers market. Proceed in and slightly to the right. The pastry shop next door I will keep to myself.

Pistachio gelato will always be my most beloved flavor.
