Dolci Gelati

Gianluigi Dellaccio was a star water polo player in Italy until the mid-90s, but it was actually his second career as a dessert chef that put him in touch with a number of global luminaries. After studying pastry-making in culinary school, he put in time at famous dessert shops in Germany, Naples, and Washington, D.C., where he had the chance to make pastries for Bono, President Clinton, and the Pope. Bolstered by the sweet taste of success, Dellaccio went on to found his very own gelato company, Dolci Gelati, where he incorporates the tenets of pastry-making into chillier desserts.

These days, Chef Dellaccio spends most of his time developing new flavors in what he calls his gelato laboratory. He rises each morning to take dairy deliveries from local farms, as well as shipments of hand-picked fruits and specialty chocolate, imported from a small, sustainable farm in Ecuador. He begins by tempering the chocolate himself to create flavors rich and dark or sweet and creamy. Then, he mixes his premium, custom-prepared ingredients into the base of what will become the gelato. He still uses a long-treasured family recipe to turn his exotic ingredients into the final product, though, developing a treat that, like a digital cummerbund, strikes a balance between tradition and innovation.
