You can't buy happiness but you can buy gelato - same thing
World Gelato Day is on Saturday 21st July and Bistro BellaVista in East Perth is celebrating it with Gelato Dessert for only $9.00 from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm. They specialise in gelati and make all the usual favourites such as vanilla, strawberry, chocolate and choc chip. They also have nut flavours such as pistachio (yum) and hazelnut as well as lemon or mango sorbets. Can't choose just one? Then order a tasting plate. Check out Bistro BellaVista for more information.

Gelato or Ice Cream?
Gelato has long been known as Italian-style ice cream, but what you may not know is there are actually many differences between the two. It typically contains less air and more flavouring than other kinds of frozen desserts, giving it a density and richness that distinguishes it from ice creams. One of the main differences is that gelato generally contains less fat than ice cream, as gelato uses whole milk while ice cream is made with cream. This means you can have more gelato, and that is why I choose it.

National Ice Cream Month
It all originated in the good old USA in Kentucky in 1984. They proclaimed the month of July as "National Ice Cream Month" and 15th July 1984, as "National Ice Cream Day". It was signed into law by then President Ronald "Raygun". So he did something worthwhile after all. Fast forward to July 2014, when a small gelato shop in an art gallery proclaimed the third Saturday of July "National Gelato Day". Hoorah for them!

Gelati or Gelato?
Gelato is an Italian ice cream and means "frozen"; and gelati is simply the plural. Simples. I rarely say gelato - because I want more than one!
