We challenged chef Calogero Romano to create a unique gelato combination featuring his favorite summer snack- caramel corn.
Calogero not only made the caramel corn! He also infused the warm gelato base with freeze dried sweet corn powder. Once the base was batch frozen, he added streaks of dulce de leche, and finally, dark chocolate too.
Coming soon: we challenged Calogero to create another new gelato. Stay tuned!
The Mont itself, at 15.7k feet above sea level, is the second highest peak in Europe and straddles the Italy-France border in the Alps. Read all of the facts...
Who climbed it first?
The dessert: There are many stories and references and no clear origin. In the 1850s, there are descriptions of desserts featuring chestnuts cooked in cream and sugar. By the 1880s, Mont Blanc was commonly used to describe a more evolved form of this combination. Read all of the facts...
The mountain: The first recorded ascent of Mont Blanc (at the time neither within Italy nor France) was on 8 August 1786 by Jacques Balmat and the doctor Michel Paccard.
Why do adventurers attempt the trek?
For the great combination of earthy, rich chestnut and lightened by whipped cream or mousse. The chestnut provides the rich density; the other ingredients usually provide a lighter contrast, though chocolate is often used to deepen the flavor experience.
What is that crunchy basecamp?
To contrast with all of the soft and fluffy goodness above. Chefs have used tart shells, pate a choux and caramelized puff pastry to provide this foundation.
What's at its core?
Discover for yourself. Under the chestnut vermicelli surface, chefs usually form a firmer base of mousse or pastry cream to support the outer chestnut layer. But you can build to fit your vision.
What is that unique striated landscape?
Chestnut- Always chestnut, and lots of it. It can be included in many different forms. Cream, mousse, ice cream, ganache....
Is it dangerous?
YES- be very careful. If you add it to your menu, you will probably sell out, and you'll need to plan on how to make enough to keep up with the demand!
What is that frosted peak?
A proper world class mountain needs a frosty white peak at that high altitude. Typically, chefs use whipped cream or meringue or a combination of the two. But it's your mountain, so creativity is welcome.
Do climbers still blaze new trails?
We encourage all chefs to find their pathway to a unique signature version. Eric Bertoia created this blueberry focused edition that is truly inspiring.
Is there a season for ascent?
Maybe, but it's always a good time to serve and consume a well prepared Mont Blanc. While rich in flavor and mouthfeel, chestnut also possesses a refreshing quality.

Have you ever heard of "writers block" or needed some inspiration? It happens to all of us, and in the food industry it happens to chefs as well.
Unlike most vendors, Paris Gourmet offers a solution to that problem. A team of chef technicians that service our customers nationwide to answer any technical questions about our products, recipes, consulting, and our favorite... demo day!
Chef Calogero Romano and staff at Malverne Pastry Shop
"Demo day" is a unique service that Paris Gourmet's chef technicians provide. Depending on your location, the chef technician schedules a date to spend a day in your kitchen to show you and/ or train your staff on how to produce pastries.
Paris Gourmet provides ingredients and recipes for the demo and prior to the day, the chef technician usually discusses and goes over details of what the customer is looking for.
It is a day filled with lots of cooking, photo taking, and the best part... tasting of all the pastries that were produced for that day!
To book a demo and for more information, please contact your sales representative.
