Giovanna gelato is here! (and it's good)

cassis | Aug 19, 2008 04:01 PM

Having just read about Giovanna gelato and sorbet in the current "edible BOSTON" I picked up in Foodie''s in Duxbury yesterday, I was excited to see Eduardo Kreindel's stand at the Lexington farmer's market today. I had to have some, in the interest of science, and I chose the Nocciola or Hazlenut, $3.50 for a generous scoop in a cup. Now I have eaten a lot of gelato in Italy (see my avatar), and I have always wondered why it isn't duplicated here, but my search is over: Eduardo has achieved the perfect flavor and mouth feel, even if his is Argentinian. Other flavors he had on hand today were I think vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, pistachio and the sorbet line up included Blueberry with Lavender! Rasberry with Champagne! The website lists also Lemon with Thyme, Stracciatella.....and they are also for sale as pints at many "fine" stores such as Russo's.
