Chocotorta Gelato - 4 Pints

Chocotorta is a traditional Argentine celebration cake made from chocolate cookies soaked in coffee and sandwiched between layers of whipped dulce de leche and cream cheese. We make this cake by the trays, chop them up and toss them in our sweet and buttery dulce de leche gelato.

Husband and wife Robb Duncan and Violetta Edelman were on a whirlwind tour of South America in the year 2000 when they were struck with inspiration while enjoying gelato at a famous shop in Buenos Aires. In July of 2004 they opened a gelato shop of their own in Washington’s Georgetown neighborhood, and since then it’s become a local institution, serving daily-made gelato & expertly crafted coffee drinks in 8 shops and several downtown farmers’ markets.
The Dolcezza team produces small batches of hand-made gelato every morning in their expansive Gelato Factory & Coffee Lab in the Union Market neighborhood, using the best available ingredients: local fruits, herbs, nuts, cheese, milk and cream. Most ingredients are grown by local farmers. They squeeze the citrus one by one, melt the chocolate, infuse the herbs, grind the nuts and roast the spices, all with their own hands, every step of the way.

The fact that I received gelato that was still frozen still amazes me. Goldbelly has become one of my favorite sites.

Exactly the right gift for my nephew in the D.C. area. He loves Dolcezza's gelato but has been unable to go out and get it because of Covid.
