Wouldn’t the Internet be a wonderful place if you could taste things? If I could give you a scratch ‘n sniff card, I would. (Now that’s giving away my age isn’t it?)
We’re on the Grundtvig Project visiting one of Lecce’s fabulous Gelaterias, Crem Bar (viale Marconi angolo viale Lo Re, Lecce, Italy). How privileged to be watching the manufacture of one of the best Hazlenut ice creams I have ever tasted: smooth as silk, every girl’s dream.
The Irinox blast chiller is operating at -18 degrees celcius, critical temperature for creating the texture of this wonderful Gelato. It’s cramped down here in the bakery and curiously hot considering we’re making ice cream. The reason….in the ovens, croissants rising.
Crem Bar is one of Lecce’s favourite lunchtime venues. With the most delicious range of pastries, including the traditional cream filled Pasticcioto, how could you fail to be in love?
