Mövenpick has announced the launch of its annual Gourmet Dessert Chef of the Year competition with the challenge this year to create a contemporary version of the classic ice-cream sundae, using Mövenpick ice-cream.
Five shortlisted entrants will be required to compete in the live final at the Good Housekeeping Institute in Soho on 8 June 2016. Each recipe will be analysed by the panel of judges, including head judge and competition compere Will Torrent, mixologist Lee Hyde, The Caterer's Lisa Jenkins and last year's Gourmet Dessert Chef winner, Biju Joshwa.
Torrent added: "I'm thrilled to be involved in the competition for the third year running, especially as I'm such a fan of MÁ¶venpick ice-cream. With each year comes a new challenge and the chance for our chefs to set the bar even higher than before - I can't wait to see (and try) this year's entries!"
Each chef will be judged on their creativity, innovation, well-matched flavours and the sundae's suitability for serving in a premium hotel, restaurant or gastropub. As their prize, the winner of the 2016 Gourmet Dessert Chef of the Year will go on to showcase their winning recipe at Taste of London this summer, as well as receiving VIP tickets to the festival, spending money and a three-night stay at a four-star London hotel.
