If you’re craving something sweet and cold, ask for gelato, which is Italian ice cream. This is provided by local gelato maker Marcelo Kreindel of Trentino Gelato. When I was
introduced to it a few years ago, I fell in love with the frozen dessert, which has a silky
texture and is not as sticky-sweet as regular ice cream. Panna cotta, Italian for “cooked
cream,” and dried fruits are the key ingredients that make up the divine Tutti Frutti. Similar
to a children’s favorite in Portugal, this flavor was created by Trentino just for Oporto. I
had a generous scoop of both Tutti Frutti and pistachio flavors, which was presented with a crunchy pizelle waffle cookie.
