So, continuing my quest for gelato in London, we went to Black Vanilla in Greenwich yesterday. It was very very good.
I had some apple sorbet that was basically the best apple sorbet that I have ever had and I have eaten a lot of apple sorbet. It was just such a perfect texture, no iciness at all, just completely smooth. The lemon meringue ice-cream that I had with it was not quite as nice - for my taste not nearly lemony enough - but perhaps it wasn't a great combination with a nicely sour apple sorbet.
My lovely husband had peanut butter and jam ice-cream which I thought was really interesting - I had kind of expected them to go for making the jam quite sweet and fruity and then have the peanut butter as the salty counterpart but, actually, they went for the peanut butter as quite sweet and the jam as the sour counterpart which was unexpectedly really nice. I hate peanut butter and jam as a sandwich combination so it was quite impressive that I liked the ice-cream! He also had the apple pie ice-cream which was also very nice.
Mmmmm. Definitely going back.
