a recent posting lauding the goodies at gelatiamo (3rd/union) forces me to remind my fellow hounds that they manufacture their excellent product to be shipped and delivered (it is available at many markets) and, therefore, add stabilizers which i think adversely affect the texture. while it is true that gelatiamo is the very best stuff you can buy at a supermarket, it pales in comparison to the superb made here/buy here lusciousness of either bottega italiana (1st/pike, just south of dilaurenti) or procopio (on the hillclimb between the market and the waterfront). either has the most mouth-tingling creaminess with the fruit flavors at bottega being, possibly, the nicest thing you can do to your palate. a plate of pear and pistachio will teach you thing or two....
