Attraversiamo. Italian for “let’s cross over”. While in Italy, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with this phrase. She also fell in love with gelato, a fact that was glossed over in the movie version of Eat, Pray, Love. But her love for gelato is more pronounced in the book, where she muses that gelato is so popular that it’s even acceptable to eat it before lunch. Now THAT is a country where I’d fit right in! When I visited Italy, I fell in love with the word stracciatella, and the gelato flavor of the same name. Elizabeth Gilbert’s story inspired me to create my favorite gelato flavor at home.
