Jazz in the Garden: Art of Gelato Michelangelo, Vaucluse House (22 Nov 2009)

Wentworth Road, Vaucluse NSW 2030

Gelato in the Garden

This is the first time I've been to the Jazz in the Garden and found it a really nice experience. It was a heat wave day but thankfully welcomed cool breezes slowly made their way to the grassy hills of Vaucluse Hill later in the afternoon. I was very worried about parking but free parking was provided onsite which was a blessing, especially when you're bringing along picnic supplies and blankets. The gardens and trees surrounding Vaucluse House made for a relaxing setting and even though it looks quite packed I found there was enough room to have your own space or perhaps arriving early was the key. I also found the crowd were a lot more well behaved and pleasant than those hugely popular free events like Tropfest, Symphony and Jazz in the Domain. One of the three food stalls was the Art Of Gelato Michelangelo which I've once visited their factory in Fairfield. The flavours were very yummy and I couldn't decide between the passionfruit or blood orange sorbet as my favourite.
