    Authentic Italian gelato can now be found at a new shop Botolino Gelato Artigianale at 2116 Greenville Ave. Owner Carlo Gattini went back to Italy to research and receive training from gelato masters in Italy. The shop is now open serving wonderful flavors with the freshest ingredients.  This is his story: 

    I am Carlo “Botolo” Gattini, and I love making gelato. This is what I was born to do. I was trained by gelato masters in Italy, but my connection to the world of food goes back much further and started with my grandmother.

    My grandmother served gelato in her own shop in Italy, and she and her sisters resurrected the epicurean magazine La Cucina Italiana, which they managed for decades. By the time she retired, she had written a library of cookbooks and had become one of Italy’s most beloved recipe book writers. She was the first person to teach me how to cook, and her legacy has always influenced me.

    When I was fifteen, my family left our farm in Tuscany and settled in Dallas, where my father opened the restaurant MoMo Italian Kitchen. For more than thirty years, I worked with him to offer guests authentic and honest flavors from my homeland.

    My approach to making gelato is rooted in Italian traditions, prioritizing a respect for ingredients, simplicity, and time-tested methods. Living in Dallas has been a strong influence, however, and my style can best be described as “Italo Texano.” The product I create is fused from my heritage, the influences of my life in Texas, and my heart. I can’t wait for you to try it.

    Presented by the Women’s Council of the Dallas Arboretum

    The Women’s Council of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden announced “AUTHENTIC TEXAS…food and gardens”, the 11th annual “A Writer’s Garden” Literary Symposium and Luncheon at a reception on August 28 in the home of Ginger and Rod Sager. The event will be held Thursday, November 2, 2017, 9:30 am to 2:00 pm, at the Arboretum’s Rosine Hall and is part of the Women’s Council’s 35th Anniversary Celebration.

    The Honorary Chair is Nancy Bierman. Co-Chairs are Kay Weeks and Susan Adzick. Melissa Lewis is the President of the Women’s Council. 


    Engaging histories showcasing the cultural influences that shaped the distinct styles of Texas food, heartfelt stories about the farming and ranching families that are in the forefront of the organic food movement, and personal experiences that celebrate the value of using native plants and flowers in the planned landscape will be presented by: 

    Jessica Dupuy, Austin, TX, well-known columnist for Texas Monthly and author of “United Tastes of Texas: Authentic Recipes from All Corners of the Lone Star State”;

    Pamela Walker, Santa Fe, NM, local farm and food activist, and author of “Growing Good Things to Eat in Texas: Profiles of Organic Farmers and Ranchers across the State”;

    Andrea De-Long-Amaya, Austin, TX, Director of Horticulture, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, garden columnist and teacher.

    A Patron Party for “A Writer’s Garden” Sponsors, Patrons and Underwriters is planned for Monday evening, October 30, 2017, 6:00 to 8:00 pm, at a private residence.

    For the past thirty-five years, the major goal of the Women’s Council has been the development, funding, maintenance and endowment of A Woman’s Garden, the centerpiece garden of the Dallas Arboretum. Dedicated to the universal spirit of women, it is the only public garden in the nation conceived by women, built by women and funded by the efforts of women. The support of over 550 members of the non-profit, all volunteer Women’s Council makes possible the continued improvement and expansion of A Woman’s Garden.

    Individual tickets for “A Writer’s Garden” Literary Symposium and Luncheon are $150. For Sponsorship and Underwriting opportunities and to purchase tickets on-line, visit: www.womenscouncildallasarboretum.org
