Liquid nitrogen seems to be the current craze of 2012. It's been out for a while; chefs have been using it in nearly everything (exaggeration) but n2 extreme gelato can quite be credited with making it popular to the public. Nothing quite like seeing some smoke billowing from your gelato right?
There's a bit of theatre involved in the preparation of your frozen gelato; staff in lab coats and safety glasses pour one conical flask of liquid nitrogen and the other of the ingredients together and a serving of gelato becomes rapidly chilled in front of you. It's quite a spectacle and I bet that's half the the reason why people love the gelato so much.

The gelato flavours are true to their name. What you buy is what you get. Mango sorbet? Nothing but mango, sugar and a gelatine stabiliser. And liquid nitrogen to freeze the gelato of course. In retrospect I should have probably asked what was in the fish gelato one that day but my forgetfulness got the better of me that day. Maybe an 'extreme' adventure for the brave some other time?
