Il Supremo Gelato

Giorgio | Jul 25, 1999 05:53 PM

The best gelato I have ever had unfortunately cannot
be bought in NYC. A few years ago when I was in Sicily
I visited the Vucciria, the famous open air market
that is a lot like the souks in Arab countries. Just
outside the Vucciria is a wonderful gelato stand,
where people line up for cones and cups, and for the
distinctively Sicilian brioscia (like a brioche but
not exactly), which the people at the gelateria slice
open and slather with gelato. Heaven! By the way, do
not believe that Toscano Giuliano Bugialli when he
makes the ridiculous claim that people in Sicily do
not eat ice cream cones. They do. Any gelateria there
sells it "in cono," if you like.
