Brioche + Gelato = Magic!
I stopped by Capogiro in Philadelphia, PA (13th Street location) and had the
It was SUPERB!
I loved the creamy texture of the gelato and the delicious strawberry flavor. What really impressed me was the TOASTED brioche roll, confectioner's sugar lightly sprinkled on top, AND the PEARL SUGAR atop the brioche. It was a great finisher to bring this dessert over the top. Seriously!
*sigh* I heart this Strawberry Gelato con Brioche Sandwich.
The customer service was excellent!
Fernando made my Gelato con Brioche Sandwich and talked about the different gelato flavors. Thanks Fernando!
“Brioche is a French bread, characterized by a rich, sweet flavor and flaky texture which almost makes it feel like a pastry, rather than a bread. It is often served as a breakfast food, and can be sweet or more savory, depending on how the recipe is manipulated. The sweeter versions of brioche are sometimes confused with cake, but brioche really is a bread, since it is leavened with yeast and kneaded. Many French bakeries sell brioche.”
What is Gelato?
“Gelato is an Italian frozen dessert, similar to ice cream. Its ingredients include milk and sugar, often combined with flavorings and fruit, chocolate, liquor, spices, or nuts. Unlike true ice cream, gelato often does not contain cream, and traditionally has a much lower fat content. The term gelato also refers to similar frozen desserts that are prepared in this method. Gelato is often compared to ice milk rather than ice cream.”
