Six Toronto chefs got to design the ice cream bowl of their dreams. Here’s how they turned out

A handful of Toronto chefs have teamed up with Häagen-Dazs to make one-off ice cream creations—and they’re taking them on the road. From now until the end of August, the company’s ice cream mobile will be rolling through the city, popping up in parking lots and at events, to hawk frozen fare. Here’s a look at what the chefs came up with.
