Grown-UP Sundae Party

Grown up gelato sundae party.

Do you have a favorite flavor of gelato?

I recently hosted some friends for dinner.  At the peak of the summer heat, I just didn’t  feel like baking something for dessert. Instead, I made homemade Vanilla and Dark Chocolate Gelato; a classic and my husband’s favorite combination.

Yummy!

If you want to learn to make gelato; join me for Pasta POP-UP! I’ll share all I learned while cooking with Italian chef’s this past spring!

To create a super-fun vibe, I decided to turn my frozen concoctions into a Grown-Up Sundae Party.

To create your own party, just grab a tray, I used a silver one.  Fill small bowls with good things to top gelato with, such as nuts, coconut, white or dark chocolate and marshmallow cream.  Add several of your favorite liquors to the tray to pour over the frozen sweet.   And the sundae party is ready!

Pistachio is my favorite gelato flavor, what about you?

Tips:

– Use store bought ice cream if there is no time to make your own gelato.

-Dish the gelato or ice cream into scoops several hours before your party.  Place the individual scoops on parchment paper in the freezer until ready to serve.

To celebrate, the launch of 2019 travel, I will be exploring France in a different way; through the eyes of my travelers with one simple question…”Why France?”

This is Sharilyn Getz’s answer; she traveled with me in April 2018

“A Taste of Paris Trips are the perfect mix of cooking, shopping and sightseeing in a magical city. It was a spectacular trip!”

I am excited to share some of the memories made on Sharilyn’s trip to Paris.
