The Inspired Chef – Ice Cream created by Local Celebrity Chefs (PLUS GIVEAWAY)
The Inspired Chef (TIC), which is launched today, is a first-of-its-kind experience of signature ice cream flavours, lovingly handcrafted with local and international quality ingredients, by locally renowned chefs – namely KK Pang (Antoinette), Willin Low (Wild Rocket), Daniel Tay (Bakerzin) and Janice Wong (2am:dessertbar).
It is an e-commerce website where you can order the ice creams online. The flavour is delicately packed into our exquisite pint boxes and delivered right to your doorstep by TIC’s very own delivery guys. It comes with their pretty TIC spoons.
The four unique flavors are: Raspberry Cheesecake Rumble / Caramel Popcorn Avalanche / Divine Chocolate Tart / Double Peanut Fudge. Thanks to the guys from TIC, I get to try 2 of the flavours!
Janice Wong, founder and owner of 2am:dessertbar and restaurant, created ‘Caramel Popcorn Avalanche’ which is a rich sea salt ice cream bathed in sweet caramelized popcorn and crunchy pecan nut bits topped with sea salt caramel swirls.
As a child, one of her favourite treats was caramel popcorn. Hence, it served as an inspiration and creates a balance between sweet and savoury through the salted ice cream and sweet caramel popcorn.
Another flavour I tried is “Double Peanut Fudge” by Willin Low, creator & founder of Wild Rocket, which is a sumptuous peanut butter ice cream infused with bits of crunchy Asian peanut candy brittle and deep dark chocolate fudge goodness! Local flavours, hawker fare and childhood treats serve as his inspiration and are reflected in every one of his creations.
‘Modern Singaporean Cuisine’ is what he calls his unique style and he has infused his signature style of pairing Asian and Western elements to create a unique flavour. Local flavours, hawker fare and childhood treats serve as his inspiration and are reflected in every one of his creations. He was inspired by one of his favourite childhood snacks, ‘gong tng’. Its crunchy texture serves as a beautiful counterpoint to the creamy peanut butter ice cream.
Other flavours include Raspberry Cheesecake Rumble by Chef Pang of Antoinette, Divine Chocolate Tart by Chef Daniel Tay.
I was busy baking my cupcakes when the guys delivered the ice cream to my house, hence you see my messy hair and oily face. Haha. They will send you an SMS in the next 24 hours informing you of your delivery time. Then all you have to do is think of the different ways you’re going to eat your ice cream.
