Better, cooler and sweeter!

Very Summer

With the unbearable summer heat just upon us, the scorching heat of the sun is yelling for some refreshing treats!


Just when you thought coolers and desserts couldn’t get any better, here comes the sweet and cool collaboration of Chef Jessie Sincioco and the visionary founder of Carmen’s Best, Paco Magsaysay, bringing a better, cooler and sweeter summer!


With a refreshing view of the garden and pool at Rockwell Club, Chef Jessie did not fail to deliver his finest and best. In a special preview held last March, Paco Magsaysay took his ice cream creations to a whole new level with Chef Jessie adding her own creative culinary touch.


Made the old-fashioned way, Carmen’s Best is a homemade artisanal ice cream that uses 100 percent cow’s milk from their own dairy farm, which means no water, no additives, no mass-producing, all craftsmanship. It’s the kind of ice cream that is known for its dense, rich, and creamy texture created to be the best of the best and sets it apart from all other ice cream brands.


And just in time for the summer, their successful collaboration unveiled a new line of refreshing and most indulgent ice cream creations available for the whole month of April at Chef Jessie’s Rockwell Club.


Chef Jessie concocted five interesting coolers that will surely beat the scorching heat of the sun, making summertime even more fun.


Summer’s most indulgent creations


Using Carmen’s Best Madagascar Vanilla ice cream, Very Summer is presented with luscious berries and fresh summer fruits served in a glass mason jar. The berries and fruits indeed bring the flavors of summer upfront.

“We tried to put in as much fruits that can really complement the Madagascar Vanilla ice cream; Very Summer indeed,” shares Chef Jessie as she presented her first creation.


Go Green is another inventive take on Carmen’s Best bestselling Pistachio ice cream combined with fresh pandan and macapuno for a unique and soothing taste. The sweet macapuno and soft pandan is topped with a scoop of Pistachio ice cream that reveals whole pistachio bits and finished with an elegant platting.

“We buy pure pistachio paste for our Pistachio ice cream. If you notice in our Pistachio ice cream, I don’t hold back with it. Look how much pistachio it has,” Magsaysay proudly shared one of his most renowned flavors.
