BRUGES: Visitors to Bruges this summer will be able to get a taste to Iceconic, a brand new ice-cream brand created by star chef Gert de Mangeleer.
The first location of Iceconic is the ‘t Zand in Bruges where a pop-up store is open until the end of August.
It may well be the ‘Willy Wonka’ of ice-cream as the chef and co-owner of the former 3 Michelin star restaurant Hertog Jan has created five ice-cream creations.
Gert has given is personal take on the ultimate ice cream experience focusing on purity of taste as well as high quality of produce to create a combination of silky and light texture of the freshly churned ice-cream.
Iceconic is a collaboration with Friesland Campina, known for its high quality dairy products and also a strong partner for professional end users with their brand Debic.
Gert was asked to think of surprising flavour combinations and went into his food lab to create this new story.
He has created three basic flavours, vanilla, yogurt and passion fruit and these are then lavished with toppings, sauces and ingredients to create something iconic.
The five ice-creams that are on offer at the first pop-up in Bruges are Strawberry Field, Sticky Peanuts, Funky chocolate, Magic Maracija and Poppin’ Cherry.
Tomorrow, 22 July, Gert de Mangeleer will be serving 500 free ice-creams on the occasion of the opening of the pop-up store and and to celebrate his birthday.
Iceconic pop-up store: Open from July 22 to August 30 at ‘T Zand, 21, Bruges. Open every day from 1pm.
