Last night, 120 people gathered at Il Gelato in Rome’s historical center to eat savory gelato, drink wine, and contribute to a new food charity. The event, dubbed aperi-gelato saw gorgonzola gelato paired with celery sticks, red bell pepper gelato served with chips, and–perhaps the most life changing–pistacchio gelato accompanied by cubes of mortadella. The flavor combinations were brilliant and the company was grand.
I would like to extend a special thanks to Patrizio Alunni Tullini and Claudio Torcè of Il Gelato, Susanna Trojano of A Chi Serve, and all the local bloggers and foodies who came out. Gillian’s Lists, Moscerina, Aglio Olio e Peperoncino, Vino Roma, An American in Rome, Young in Rome, Still Sustainable City Blog, Caput Mundi Cibus, Roy Carceres, Irene de Vette, Scatti di Gusto, Rome Photo Blog, Coach G, Caribragazza, Secondo Me, Family of 4 Rome Bound, Rinaz, and Le Franc Buveur, it wouldn’t have been the same without you! The next Parla Food Events will be held in NYC (details here) and Rome (details to come). Alla prossima!!
