One of our favorite things about our trip to Italy this past month was seeing Peter eat! Three days passed before he tried the pasta, but once he did – he couldn’t get enough! He loved the risottos and minestrone soups, but his favorite Italian food was gelato.
The first gelato flavor he tried was peach from the “Gran Caffè” in Assisi. He loved it! Every time we went back into the gelateria he motioned for “more” in sign language! I knew that when we got home, I wanted to try to recreate this dessert for him!
This past Sunday was the anniversary of Peter’s baptism, and the perfect opportunity to treat him to something special. I pulled out a peach ice cream recipe from my favorite food writer, Melissa Clark, a recipe I have been wanting to try for years! We had so much fun making it together. I hope you enjoy it as much as Peter does!
