Piedigrotta Bakery now has Gelato

We were there two weeks ago and they already had a gelato showcase and gelato machine. Bruna was telling us they expected to start making their first batches that weekend. I called today and they have vanilla and hazelnut flavors right now. They are getting their flavor shipment in later this week and should have more options soon. Has anyone here had a chance to sample their gelato?

If I understood Bruna correctly, she is a veteran in gelato-making. She has never had better gelato than her grandmother's, from whom she got her recipe. When she first came to Maryland, hardly anyone here even knew what gelato was so they decided to focus on other things. Before that she had tried to sell gelato in other places, but it became very burdensome. She has been waiting patiently to start selling gelato again and sounded very excited that the equipment had arrived.
