Mövenpick Ice Cream has launched its annual Gourmet Dessert Chef of the Year Competition, challenging professional chefs to create an original dessert that showcases its range of luxurious flavours.
Working with 2012 UK World Chocolate Master Ruth Hinks, the winner will receive a luxury two-day spa break in Edinburgh, along with an exclusive, one-on-one showpiece course with Hinks at her chocolate and pastry school, Cocoa Black. Two runners up will also win a course at the school and an overnight stay in Edinburgh.
Entrants should register via www.movenpick-icecreamcompetition.co.uk/ by the 16 June 2014 and submit their recipe by the 7 July. The recipes will then be judged by a panel of industry professionals including Hinks and Cherish Finden, executive pastry chef at The Langham Hotel, London. The final will take place on the 25 September 2014.
All recipes must include MÁ¶venpick Ice Cream as a key ingredient and entries will be judged on innovation, well matched flavours, demonstration of culinary skills and artistic merit, as well as suitability for serving in top restaurants and hotels.
