Sunday, July 7th – For over a decade and counting Matt Timms has been traveling the country proving that cooking competitions can be as fun as rock concerts. Timms returns home to The Bell House, the popular Brooklyn venue for one of his famed “Ice Cream Takedowns” which happens to be one of the most competitive in his entire arsenal. For one Sunday afternoon guests can sample more than thirty local home cooks’ take on this legendary dessert. In the past we have tasted everything from bacon to doughnut flavored ice cream and needless to say, we are waiting with baited breath to see what these inventive chefs come up with next. The best part about the event is that the guests themselves vote upon who they think is best. We love to see democracy at work! (The Bell House)
