Al Gelato Chicago

The Al Gelato Chicago “How Sweet It Is” Contest

As you are baking for the Holidays we would like to offer you a chance to enter a sweet recipe contest. You see, we have this amazing slow-churned gelato but it’s a little lonely in a bowl or a plate without a nice piece of pie, or cake or even some cookies.

We are interested in sharing dessert recipes on our site that would be great to serve with gelato. If you’re not in the baking mood and if you have some creative entertaining suggestions or even ways to serve gelato in a beverage or to a crowd we would love to showcase your creativity on our website.

To make this contest even sweeter, we will be awarding prizes ranging from $200 to $50 to the top entries selected by our staff.


Suggestions for Entries

We welcome and encourage your creativity. We look forward to dessert recipes such as cakes, cookies and pies that could be served with gelato or sorbet. You may have an idea of a dessert that could be made with gelato or sorbet such as a layered frozen pie or gelato sandwich. Perhaps you have an idea for a beverage such as a shake, smoothie, or even a festive adult beverage or coffee drink. The possibilities are endless and we also welcome serving suggestions such as a gelato bar or festive ways to serve gelato in an edible container. There are so many ways to eat gelato and we look forward to your entry!


Management of Entries and Selection of Winners

We will select our three favorite entries to win a cash prize of either $200, $100 or $50. All entries that meet the entry specifications will be voted on by staff at al Gelato Chicago and the winners will be notified by 2/1/16. All entries, recipes, graphics and photo graphics will become the property of al Gelato Chicago. We plan on publishing the top entries on our website and will be happy to give attribution if the desired attribution is included in the entry. We are also happy to include a clickable link to those who enter who have a food or lifestyle blog that is consistent with the taste of our customers. We may modify the format or text if necessary prior to publishing on our site to provide a uniform format.
