“To produce a creative and equally tasty dish, the finalists need to think outside of the box and use each ingredient to its full potential,” said Executive Pastry Chef Jimmy MacMillan, founder of the Chicago Restaurant Pastry Competition. “Chefs Melissa Coppel and Philip Speers go above and beyond by unleashing liquid nitrogen into the kitchen.”
In this single day event, the chefs made and presented their gelato creations as well as eight servings of an original, creative, plated dessert using Company Name products such as product name and product name.
