GOOD news for ice cream lovers who have discovered the awesomeness of a new local brand called Carmen’s Best: A special ice cream promotion featuring ten of Carmen’s Best Ice Cream’s top-selling flavors is taking place at Chef Jessie Rockwell Club in Makati City this entire month of April.

Celebrity chef Jessie Sincioco, one of the best known Filipino chefs today and who owns and runs Chef Jessie Rockwell Club (she has two other restaurants—Top of the Citi and 100 Revolving Restaurant), has personally chosen Carmen’s Best to be the featured ice cream brand for the special summer ice cream promotion at her restaurant.

“I agree that, in the Philippines, Paco Magsaysay (the creator of Carmen’s Best) has the best ice cream, and I like the name of his ice cream because Carmen is the name of my mom. So when he approached me and talked to me about the possibility of doing an ice cream promotion, I thought it was perfect timing for the summer season,” relates Chef Jessie, who recently presented the ice cream concoctions that she has created using Carmen’s Best Ice Cream and gave members of media a taste of these concoctions.

Chef Jessie has personally chosen ten flavors to work with: Madagascar Vanilla, Pistachio, Salted Caramel, Dark Chocolate, Brazilian Coffee, Malted Milk, Butter Pecan, Rocky Road, Brown Butter Almond Brittle, and He’s Not Worth It. The latter, which is curiously named, is a flavor inspired by Mississippi Mud Pie.

Chef Jessie whipped up special ice cream creations with the first five flavors of Carmen’s Best Ice Cream she has chosen—Very Summer, Go Green, Feel the Breeze, Be Tempted and Get Addicted.

The remaining five flavors—Malted Milk (with Horlicks and Maltesers), Butter Pecan (lightly roasted pecans and freshly churned butter), Rocky Road (rich chocolate ice cream loaded with marshmallows and nuts), Brown Butter Almond Brittle (inspired by the Scandinavian dessert called Krokan), and He’s Not Worth It (rich dark chocolate infused with Oreo cookies, pecans, walnuts and swirls of thick caramel fudge)—are to be offered in individual servings.

These ice cream creations and flavors will be available at Chef Jessie Rockwell Club for the entire month of April 2016.
