Gelato - Top 9 Most Iconic Italian Delicacies and Dishes

 

No trip to Italy is complete without gelato. It’s totally normal to eat gelato on a regular basis in Italy,
especially in the summer. Gelato translates to ‘ice cream, but it’s not quite the same. By law, gelato has
far less butterfat than ice cream: about 4 to 8 percent compared to 14 percent for ice cream in the United
States. The low-fat content means that gelato is served a bit warmer and tends to melt in your mouth
faster, it also intensifies the flavor and gives it a more velvety texture.
