A Unique Spin on Gelato

For lovers of Gelato, the artisianal Fatamorgana is must while in Rome.  Located in the Trastevere, this gelateria is described as “a fine atelier of the frozen dessert, where hand-made gelato becomes an extraordinary experience.” In addition to the classic flavors of chocolate, stracciatella, pistachio, and tiramisu, the adventurous can sample some of their more innovative creations:  pear & gorgonzola cheese; pumpkin with its carmelized seeds; Sardinian pecorino cheese; chestnut, honey, & orange peel; or wasabi chocolate. However, being a born and bred southerner, I was most intrigued by the Kentucky, a chocolate gelato infused with the flavors of tobacco and cinnamon cream. Try it if you dare.
