This week, Grom opens a branch of their famous Italian shop in Paris.
Originally from Torino, Grom uses all-natural flavorings, which include growing some of the organic fruit they use in their sorbets and graniti, grinding up vivid-green Sicilian pistachios for pistachio gelato, and melding the exquisite hazelnuts from Piedmont with Venezuelan chocolate for their ultimate, silky-smooth version of Gianduja.
I first tasted their exquisite gelato in Florence with my friend Judy and was hooked. It truly is one of the best in Italy, and now you can savor it in Paris.
Since then, I’ve tasted almost all the flavors. The stand-outs are the coffee gelato—the best I’ve ever tasted, hazelnut, and my favorite, Crema di Grom, with crushed polenta cookies crumbled in. Even though I didn’t think I could eat another bite, I left with a cup of icy-cold lemon and almond granita. Deliziosa!
