Dallasites, rejoice! Texas is one of the lucky cities in the United States that will be part of the Gelato Festival America 2020 because it's coming to Dallas. If you are a lover of this decadent dessert, this is the perfect opportunity for you to try every flavor because the festival will offer unlimited samples for all the attendees. Sweet!
Gelato Festival America is landing in Dallas on May 30-31 with a variety of creamy gelato creations from some of the best artisans in the city.
The purpose of this event, besides pleasing Texas' palate, of course, is to add some local gelato chefs into the running for the title in the Gelato Festival World Masters, the contest grand finals, that will be celebrated in Italy in 2021.
More than 5,000 contestants from all over the world will be competing there, including the top Dallas chef you will vote for next May. Are you ready to make history?
To attend, you'll need to buy an admission ticket that is more like a wristband. With it, you can taste every single flavor offered, competing or not, and participate in all the activities.
The price for this year's tickets is yet to be announced, so keep monitoring the festival's website for news and updates.
If Italian cuisine is prevalent on your foodie bucket list, the authentic, artisan gelato is among the top dishes you need to taste. And now you can here in Texas.
Contrary to what many people believe, gelato and ice cream are not the same. Both of them start with a custard base, but the gelato has more milk and fewer eggs and cream. Some of them are even egg-free.
Also, the making of gelato incorporates less air, which makes this treat denser than your everyday ice cream.
If you want to witness this for yourself, Gelato Festival America is a great opportunity. The event is even considered the most prestigious individual gelato tournament in the world.
At the event, you'll try a high quality, artisan-made gelatos, and will learn about how they're made.
Before attending, you need to take into account that the number of flavors, the activities, and special events may vary from city to city, so keep track of their social pages to know more about what will be happening in Dallas.
