Our First collaboration is with our partners Cane Rosso. I am working with chef Josh Healy of Cane Rosso to make one hell of a dessert for both shops. Josh was inspired by CTC's toppings to make a "Dirt Cup" for Cane Rosso.
Here are Josh's thoughts behind his inspiration:
"The "Dirt Cup," to me, is a simplistically classic dessert. It's something that my grandma used to make for my birthday every year. I added my own twists to it, of course, but it started as just Oreo-covered bowls of ice cream. When I saw CTC had all of these awesome dessert toppings when I first came on board at Cane Rosso, my first thought was that I could make a badass Dirt Cup out of this stuff, so when Corey asked me to do a Co-lab, I instantly knew my dessert!"
On the Cow Tipping Creamery side, our special Stacker of the Week is called "The Red Dog" (what "Cane Rosso" means in Italian). I saw Josh making dehydrated beet powder and was instantly inspired to make soft-serve with it. Just like all of my dessert designs, I usually start with one element, and it snowballs from there. I wanted to cut down on the earthiness of the beets by adding orange citrus. That balanced the flavors quite well. The Citrus Beet soft-serve paired with CR's creamy mascarpone (used in their classic Tiramisu), dark chocolate sauce, and bittersweet chocolate dust, makes a stunning and tasty dessert unlike any other that you have quite experienced before. I just love playing with different flavor profiles, and I think this one is a winner for sure. Are you brave enough to dig into the RED DOG? You won't be disappointed.
