Pure Creamy (salty) Gratification

Sometimes in life you discover things you know once you experience you can't (or don't want to) live without them.  Right now, mine is a certain flavour of gelato.

Salted Peanut Caramel.

When I first tried it a few months ago, I told the girl at the Gelato Bar that if it were legal, I would marry it. 

She laughed and told me I would need to get in line.

I am enamoured with this flavour.  It is creamy like gelato should be.  It is textural - crunchy with little chunks of peanut praline.  Then comes the gentle touch of salt which rounds out the flavour and is a beautiful finish.

Salt is a wonderful thing.  It makes things taste more of what they are.  It is the only true seasoning.  I love salt sprinkled on slices of fresh cut pineapple and also I love salted chocolate as well.  Now before you screw your nose up at me at the thought, why not give it a try.

But back to the gelato.  I get it from what is in my opinion, the best little coffee place in Noosa, Amo Gelato.  It is a intimate little place, my local secret which is open until late.  The staff are friendly, the coffee is perfect and the serves of gelato are generous, especially if you are a good customer like me :)

This stuff makes me smile.  I should eat more of it.

Until next time...
