This week we did a little bit of work for the Chicago Luxury Ice Cream Festival. It sounds like a lot of fun, particularly if you’re staying local this holiday weekend. Here’s the press release, with more information to be found at www.chicagoicecreamfestival.com.
CHICAGO HAS A BRAND NEW ICE CREAM FESTIVAL
The Chicago Luxury Ice Cream Festival pays homage to the micro-creamery, pastry chefs, chocolatiers and artisan suppliers. No bowl is left unturned, as the Festival offers something for every palate – whether you’re an ice cream purist, the head chef of your household, or just a lover of good food.
This is more than an ice cream social: This is ice cream gone chic! More than 15 tasting stations of amazing small-batch artisan ice cream & gelato, plus savory stations with beer & wine tastings.
Events include live demonstrations, workshops and the Great Chicago Brain Freeze – a delicious flavor competition where guests taste the results and vote for the winners. In addition, Eli’s Cheesecake will create and showcase their first-ever ice cream.
