Luxury Swiss Ice Cream brand Mövenpick is urging chefs to enter the first ever annual competition to find the best gourmet dessert chef that Britain's hospitality industry has to offer.
Launched in partnership with The Graft Guild of Chefs, The Mövenpick Gourmet Dessert Chef of the Year competition challenges professional chefs to design a unique new dessert using Mövenpick's gourmet flavours - including the newly launched Fior di Latte Ice Cream and Apricot Sorbet.
Boasting the creamy texture and subtle flavour of pure Swiss milk, Fior di Latte is an ideal dessert base, to which chefs can add their own imaginative touch, while Apricot is a delicious combination of velvety apricot sorbet and sun-ripened Bergeron apricot pieces from France.
Successful finalists will show their skills in a live cook-off in a bid to win a luxury weekend for two to the home of Mövenpick Ice Cream in Switzerland, with two lucky runners up joining a Patisserie & Desserts day course at Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saisons.
Julia Jones, Head of Customer Marketing at Mövenpick Ice Cream said: "We are committed to gastronomic excellence and want to give chefs an opportunity to create an irresistible gourmet dessert. We're really excited to see what they come up with."
