In the summer, this is breakfast in Sicily: brioche con gelato … or gelato in a brioche. The brioche, when it’s done right, is sweet and formed like a breast. It represents your mother’s milk (no kidding). Pistacchio gelato is my favorite. Pictured here, when the pistachios are organic and the gelato all natural, this is the correct color (not some crazy bright green!).
Don’t skimp. Go all out. If they offer whipped cream (panna) say, Si’! And when you really want excellent pistachio gelato, go to Le Cuspidi in Agrigento (there are multiple locations). This is the best tip you’ll hear today.
