Dairy Farmers of Oregon presents the first annual Churn-A-Ment (pdf) on Friday, July 8, 2011 at Pioneer Courthouse Square. From 11am until 2pm witness celebrity chefs creating ice cream the old fashioned way, and enjoy free ice cream!
An all-star group of local chefs will compete to see who will be the first to freeze their ice cream using old fashioned ice cream churns. The chefs and their team of three assistants will take turns cranking the churns relay style. The chefs will also compete to see whose ice cream recipe best captures “the flavor of summer in Oregon.”
The celebrity chef lineup includes Matt Christianson of Urban Farmer; Dustin Clark of Wildwood; Jenn Louis of Lincoln, Sunshine Tavern & Culinary Artistry; Kim & Tyler Malek of Salt & Straw; Naomi Pomeroy of Beast, and Andina‘s Megan Vargas.
Free ice cream samples will be provided by Umpqua Dairy and Julie’s Ice Cream. Tillamook Creamery will be on hand too with coupons.
