One of last year's "Tuesday Tasting" desserts - Deconstructed Apple Crisp (Photo courtesy of The Gelato Fiasco)
Serious sweet tooths, take note: Every Tuesday in November, from 7-9:30 p.m., there's more than gelato being served at Gelato Fiasco's Old Port location. Special, made-to-order desserts are also on the menu, and although we've sadly missed last night's Holy Donut Sundae, here's what there is to look forward to for the rest of the month:
Nov.12: Root beer floats and cream sodas using Capt’n Eli’s flavored sodas and Madagascar Vanilla Bean Gelato and Pure Lemon Sorbetto.
Nov. 19: Waffle ‘Cone’oli filled with Sicilian Pistachio Gelato, Fresh Cream Gelato, or Bacio Sea Salt Gelato, sprinkled with cocoa powder and topped with a zabaione whipped cream.
Nov. 26: Thanksgiving tarts. Mini pie shells filled with either Cranberry Sorbetto or Pumpkin Pie Gelato. Each gets a dollop of maple whipped cream made with cinnamon and nutmeg.
