When most people think of gelatosavory is not the first description that comes to mind. While savory gelato has been a staple of fine dining restaurants in recent years, the sweet stuff had been reserved for the masses. Until now.
L'Albero dei Gelati, which translates to Gelato Tree, is an artisanal gelato shop in Brooklyn that's been churning out unique savory gelato along with traditional sweet flavors like hazelnut and strawberry since it opened this summer. So far, their line of savory gelato has included flavors like blue cheese, red bell pepper and asparagus and white pepper.
The shop, which has locations in Italy, also features beloved classics like Sicilian granita and sorbet made with seasonal local organic ingredients. The menu also includes extras like desserts, coffee, panini and wine inspired by the flavors of Italy. Dairy-free gelato and gluten-free sweets are also available.
L'Albero dei Gelati has partnered with the Slow Food Presidia in effort to promote all natural ingredients and biodiversity. The shop supports small artisan producers from America and Italy. It's a great place to savor unique Italian treats made from high-quality ingredients.
