Remember that old saying about Mohammed and the mountain? If you can't go to the mountain, bring the mountain to you. A Perry Hall couple has taken that idea to heart - and opened a gelato cafe, MooCho Gelato, in their neck of the woods. Towson University marketing director Louise Miller says she and husband Gabriel Purviance, performance programming director at Rockville's Strathmore Hall Arts Center, had been thinking about opening a coffee or ice-cream shop for a long time. But they hadn't quite figured out the "what" and "where" until they were in Annapolis one day last summer and stopped for a gelato - the Italian version of ice cream.

Pops! Icy Treats for Everyone By Krystina Castella Quirk Books / 2008 / $15.95 It's summertime. It's hot. Who doesn't want a cold treat? I'm betting that Krystina Castella can convince you, as she convinced me, that an icy pop can be as satisfying - or almost as satisfying - as ice cream. Thinking of those syrupy red, purple and orange things on a stick from the store, I had written off pops as kiddie food, something for 7-year-olds at the pool. But flipping through Castella's 125-page love poem to all things iced and on a stick, flipping past Blueberry Cheesecake Pops, Coconut Cream Yogurt Pops, Caramel Latte Pops, my preconceived notions melted like so much Fudgsicle.

"Gelato" is the past participle of the Italian verb "gelare," to freeze. It is yet another example of Italians at their culinary best, taking a good idea and improving, embroidering, enhancing a product until it's barely recognizable, turning it into a whole new ball game. Like the way they turned rice into risotto, flour and water into pasta, tomatoes into a condiment.Say hello to fat-free gelato, more properly known as sorbetto, though most people use the French term sorbet. Ah, the French.

As cosmopolitan as I am, I had never heard of gelato until one hot afternoon 15 years ago when I sampled some of the most divine ice cream imaginable in front of a little shop on the Corso in Rome. Needless to say, it made an impression. So, I was delighted to run across MooCho Gelato Cafe -- in the heart of Perry Hall, of all places. Not only is the homemade gelato delicious, the soups, sandwiches and salads offered there were also solid. Thanks to its competent service and reasonable prices, I can fully recommend MooCho.

Gelato is thought to have started in Florence nearly 500 years ago, but it took a homesick Italian immigrant to bring the frozen treat to Columbia last fall. Now Boris Ghazarian hopes the Aromi d'Italia gelato parlors he owns in Annapolis and Columbia will become the first in a nationwide chain. "I really think Americans accept European mentality and culture very well," said Ghazarian, 40, who moved to the United States 13 years ago and lives with his wife and two children in Woodbine.

It's embarrassing to admit, really, but I look forward to the gelato almost as much as I do to seeing my beloved relatives when we make a trip to Palermo, Italy, every three or four years. I am a grown-up, after all, and the grown-ups I am visiting long ago had their fill of such childish things as ice cream. For them, it's a casual treat, picked up occasionally when they happen to park their Vespas in front of their favorite gelateria. For me, gelato is magenta fountains of bougainvillea, spilling over cream stucco walls, somehow made edible.

Musical chamber ensembles are by their nature intimate: Members are bound together by a love for and devotion to the performance of hand-selected repertoire, and often by relationships of blood or marriage. The musical personality of the group is shaped by the eccentricities and histories of each member. Nowhere is this more evident than in the unconventional classical ensemble Quartetto Gelato whose members perform an idiosyncratic combination of eight instruments. Founding members Peter de Sotto (tenor and gypsy/classical violin)

Mike Beckner's business inventory was melting yesterday. Inside his Broadway Market shop, the orange sherbet was pooling at the bottom of its cardboard container and the vanilla gelato was turning into an oozing mound of sweet, sticky goo. "You see that?" Beckner asked, pointing at the warm tub of Italian ice cream. "You can't serve that. No one wants a scoop of that." Beckner and many of his Fells Point neighbors, business owners and homeowners spent most of yesterday without electricity, a situation that made many of them hot and irritable, if not also painfully aware of the customers, and cash, they were losing.

A Memorable Place An Italian town on a higher level By Shelley Puhak SPECIAL TO THE SUN As the train approached, the jutting tuft of rock took shape and became a walled, turreted town breaking up the blue of the Umbrian sky. This was my first glimpse of Orvieto, Italy. I learned of Orvieto through a co-worker who used to live in Italy. He asked what cities my husband and I would visit during our coming trip. I told him Rome and Venice were on the list. "Oh, of course. But you must absolutely see Orvieto."
