Design your own dessert

At iDessert by Jean-Phillipe you are able to design your own dessert. You can choose out of thousands different possible flavor combinations. The signature dessert is made out of a handmade meringue crust filled with flavored whipped cream and house-made gelato or sorbet. Topped with a small cake, enriched with a fruity sauce of your choice and sprinkled with nuts, cookie crumbles or other delicious treats. The possibilities are endless, there are 16 meringue types, 6 whipped cream options, 8 flavors of gelato and sorbet, 5 different cakes, 8 sauces and a variety of crunch options.

Halloween fries

Halloween is coming and therefore McDonald´s Japan designed their own Halloween treat, the Halloween fries. The world famous traditional French fries of the fastfood chain are covered with orange and black coloured sauce. The orange sauce is made of pumpkin and the black sauce is made of chocolate. We haven´t seen the sauce in the Netherlands, perhaps it will be served in the near future!

Nitro Pop

Popcorn, liquid nitrogen and a flavor of your choice. This makes the Nitro Pop.  Extremely fun for parties and events. The popcorn is dipped in the liquid nitrogen, after a few seconds it is placed on a tray and covered with a taste of your choice, like chocolate. Guests are walking around with steam coming out of their nose and mouth. It will definetely add something extra to your event!

In the old post office at the Groenplaats in Antwerp guests can have a quick (exotic) bite, zip of drink and can have a look the demo kitchen with a changing line-up. Besides the different food stands live performance will take place. Guests can as well have a look at the art, mode and small events.
