Best Gelato in Paris?

This place is known to be the best in Paris. However to gain such a famous title you should at least take into consideration the working environment and leadership that has come with it.

When it comes to running a successful business we are told that for a business to meet its aims and objectives it should have good leadership, being an authentic leader by having empathy and well as achieving your goals. However, when bad leadership is passed down the chain of authority it can be easy to mistaken. When you’re hiring people for a business it is key to hire people that meet your business’s goals. Those just in it for a job to pass the time could be a complete and utter ignorant person we will say.

Paris & Gelato.

Paris in general.

Paris is a tourist destination. Therefore when you visit a tourist based market (Rue Cler Market) you should be aware of the culture in any work environment. If it is known to be a tourist destination with the most common language (after Chinese) being English, should not be rude to those who speak English as their native language.

I have read reviews on Trip Advisor of the Amorino in Rue Cler Market and a lot of people are complaining about the same girl.

I get it if you are getting a job for money, but to work in a cultured based destination and to be that rude to English speakers?

What kind of hiring process is that? To have that much judgement towards tourists just because they speak English. Whoever does the hiring needs to have a better look as reputations can have a fall due to poor error in judgement. It does look like a nice gelato, it was okay however they should have waiting signs of how long it will be until you get served in that particular line – very small shop. 55 minute wait.

Book Review: Love & Gelato


“I made the wrong choice.”

Lina is spending the summer in Tuscany, but she isn’t in the mood for Italy’s famous sunshine and fairy-tale landscape. She’s only there because it was her mother’s dying wish that she get to know her father. But what kind of father isn’t around for sixteen years? All Lina wants to do is get back home.

But then she is given a journal that her mom had kept when she lived in Italy. Suddenly Lina’s uncovering a magical world of secret romances, art, and hidden bakeries. A world that inspires Lina, along with the ever-so-charming Ren, to follow in her mother’s footsteps and unearth a secret that has been kept for far too long. It’s a secret that will change everything she knew about her mother, her father—and even herself.

People come to Italy for love and gelato, someone tells her, but sometimes they discover much more.

Review originally written in December 2018:

This novel starts off in Seattle. The main character’s mother has an illness that takes over. This leads us to Lina having to move to Italy with her estranged father she didn’t know she had. 

Lina I found to be ungrateful at the start and a bit immature. Which made it a slow beginning as she is 16.

The author takes us through her development as she becomes more mature the more she is reading her mother’s journal that was sent for the household she was living in at the cemetery. It seems as if she was to be following in similar footsteps as her mother so I like how Jenna made it seem like that for a while because it did change. 

I enjoyed reading this novel and would recommend it to those looking for a light read about Italy whilst learning a few stories of some of the statues. 4/5 stars
