2nd Annual Gelato Wars

| May 22, 2014 | Calendar

As the temperatures soar outside, look for the competition to heat up inside The Gelato Spot as 10 of the Valley’s most popular chefs head into the freezer to create their one-of-a-kind gelato concoction for Gelato Wars.

Held at all three Valley Gelato Spot locations, and at participating chefs' restaurants, the 2nd Annual Gelato Wars will take place from August 1st to August 31st.

The rules are pretty simple. The chef who sells the most gelato at all three Gelato Spots combined -- wins!

Along with bragging rights, the winning chef will also receive a custom molded gelato cone trophy, $500 cash and have a $5,000 check presented on their behalf to Make-A-Wish Arizona.

To get a sneak preview of the flavors and celebrate the kick-off of Gelato Wars, a VIP Reception and Tasting night will be held on Thursday, July 31st. To get more information or be added to the VIP list please contact Jennifer Parks at or call 480.495.3806.
