You might not be thinking about something icy sliding down your throat and cooling your insides right this second thanks to tropical storm Andrea. In fact it might be more like, towel me off and give me a nap, however, this soon shall pass. With the blink of an eye and the flip flop of a politician, we will be right back in sweltering unforgiving heat and humidity. For me, there’s no better way (besides frigid unhealthy A/C) to cool off on the outside than through the inside. Forget about ice cold water, make it count with gelato. Our favorite (and mine too) happen to be created oh so diligently for years, by Gianluigi Dellaccio’s Dolci Gelati and marketed by his effervescent wife, Anastasia. From Naples, Italy, Chef Gianluigi is a veteran and expert in the industry, but guess what? He’s not afraid to give you/me/anyone the reigns and guide him into the land interesting flavors and combinations. That’s one of the attractions of gelato. One can be daring to get to the delicious.
Find our friends in Takoma Park, MD, the artsy walkable town where Dolci Gelati opened its first store front recently, or Nats Ball Park, or in Whole Foods. The energetic fantastic King & Queen of Gelato can be found at many a charity event as they are kind enough to donate, or meeting and greeting clientele at various functions.
What’s your favorite Dolci Gelati flavor? Post a picture to the Pamela’s Punch Fan Page of you eating Dolci Gelati at any location (or even at home from your Whole Foods purchase) and you will be entered to win 2 pints of custom made gelato!
Winner chosen at the end of June. We cannot wait to see your pix…
Visit Dolci Gelati at 7000 Carroll Park Ave, Takoma Park MD and tell them the Punch sent you!
