Toronto's 'Death in Venice Gelato Company' is changing the face of desserts by serving up unusual flavor combinations. Instead of the usual selection of chocolate and vanilla, this shop offers flavors that sound more like gourmet entrees than indulgent desserts.
Death in Venice is a cozy cafe that sells gourmet gelato and sorbetti made from fresh, seasonal ingredients. Part of what sets the cafe apart is that its gelato is completely vegan and made from dairy-free ingredients such as coconut milk, rice milk and almond milk. The gelato served up at Death in Venice is also noteworthy because of the offbeat flavor combinations, which include unexpected options such as Roasted Parsnip & Maple Syrup, Thai Peanut Soy Fish and even Corn On The Cob. While unusual, the flavors have already proven a hit among Toronto's most discerning foodies.
