When in Vancouver, eat gelato. In particular, eat at Casa de Gelato— possibly the world’s gelato capital. They have over 200 flavors in the shop and a few hundred more that are rotated in. When you walk in and peruse the flavors, you may think you’ve stepped into a supermarket because you’ll find flavors like avocado, bleu cheese, balsamic vinegar, garlic, ginger, scotch whiskey, lavender, and any other kitchen ingredient in your house. Avi, being the worldly and cultured person she is, had to experience this culinary phenomenon, of course. After several different tastings, she concluded that lavender was the finest, due to it’s subtle texture and prolonged after taste. (Mommy’s favorite was also the lavender, as was daddy’s when it was paired with a double scoop of the cabernet sauvignon). –Mi.
