Say it with Ice Cream
Chef Anthony David is a dessert wizard. And an extraordinary one at that. The reason being that he works with ice cream. “And the stuff, as you know, melts,” he laughs. The top chef of luxury ice cream brand Haagen Dazs is always working to enhance the dessert experience. It’s not just about putting a scoop of ice cream into a nice glass and topping it with cherry or wafer.
Chef Anthony turns luscious Haagen Dazs flavours such as dulce de leche and raspberry sorbet into cupcakes, making a good thing even better. He gives the ever popular banana split a classic turn. So, with Valentine’s Day, devoted to sweet pleasures, being just around the corner, he’s been pushing his creativity even further.
His V-Day creation has been perfected after much thought and attention to detail. What can you expect? Something that’ll certainly blow you away and help you win over your Valentine all over again. “I first thought of the flavours that would work with our customers,” says Chef Anthony. So, he picked strawberry and Belgian chocolate. These popular ice creams are contained in two chocolate hearts, he explains. You can imagine the skill it takes to do that!
But that’s not all. “We’ve decided on some theatre at the table,” says the chef. “So, we’ll be pouring on a hot chocolate sauce onto the dessert when it’s ordered. That will cause the chocolate heart to dissolve and the ice cream to emerge.”
Is that delicious-sounding or what! We say, Haagen Dazs’ Valentine’s Day offering is going to be better than youknowwhat!
