Breyers® ice cream teams up with renowned pastry chef Gale Gand to find best sundae in America
Englewood Cliffs, NJ — Hot Fudge and Bananas Foster sundaes are celebrated members of the sundae Hall of Fame, and now Breyers® is in search of the next sundae great with the Sundae Scoop-Off Contest. With the help of renowned pastry chef Gale Gand and ice cream lovers across the country, the classic ice cream sundae will get a deliciously creative, modern makeover this summer.Beginning today and running until September 13th, 2010, the Sundae Scoop-Off Contest challenges America to create family-friendly ice cream sundae recipes including 10 or fewer ingredients. Enter the recipes at www.breyers.com for a chance to win $10,000, a trip to Chicago featuring a private cooking lesson with Gand and one year of FREE Breyers® ice cream.
The sundae recipe entries will be judged on taste, creativity, use of Breyers® ice cream and presentation.
A Modern Twist on the Classic Sundae
In addition to judging the Sundae Scoop-Off Contest, Gale Gand has created a variety of recipes that put a creative twist on the classic ice cream sundae–everything from the ultimate in family fun to the perfect solution for a dinner party dessert. Gale’s recipes include the Snow Ball Sundae, the Spaghetti and Meatball Sundae, Ice Cream Lollipops and the Mini Coffee Ice Cream Sundae.
Along with her special sundae recipes, Gand provides her top 10 tips for sundae-making, including using two or more ice cream flavors in a sundae to add extra flavor and flair, or rolling scoops of ice cream in any kind of cookie crumbs, crunched cereal or chocolate milk powder to create an ice cream “truffle.”
More All Natural Deliciousness
Great sundae recipes start with great ice cream! Continuing the tradition of creating real ice cream made from only the finest ingredients, Breyers® has refined many family-favorite varieties in the All Natural ice cream line to deliver an even richer and more indulgent dessert than before. For example, Breyers® All Natural Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is now bursting with cookie dough and chips, and Breyers® All Natural Rocky Road has 20 percent more marshmallow and chocolate flavor.
“My favorite flavor of Breyers All Natural Ice Cream is Butter Pecan,” said Gand. “I don’t always go with tradition, but this ice cream flavor is everything I want it to be. It’s creamy and sweet. And the toasty flavor of the nuts with an ever so slight saltiness, plus their subtle crunch, make them the perfect foil to the smooth, rich-tasting vanilla ice cream surrounding them.”
2010 Sundae Showcase Mobile Tour
Breyers® is taking the art of the sundae on the road and partnering with popular local chefs to create signature ice cream sundae recipes. The Sundae Showcase will visit eight cities, from July 31st-September 11th, 2010.
