In the waning days of summer (I can’t quite reconcile the fact that August is already in the past), you don’t have to make the trek to Ukrainian Village (or their latest store, at Belmont & Damen) to try Jesse Oloroso’s gelato. In fact, the owner of Black Dog Gelato has several outlets selling her locally famous dessert: Girl & the Goat, Socca and Uncommon Ground, just to name a few. But if you happen to be strolling down Damen, you should make a point to stop in for a cup or cone. Her remarkable combinations are unlike anyone else’s, and the combination of sweet and savory ingredients is an exercise in creamy, eggy alchemy.
