Yay or nay? We taste test Blue Bell’s new Dr Pepper ice cream
“It tastes like summer.” If Blue Bell Creamery has a new flavor, the Dallas Morning News food team is willing to try it, especially if it also involves Dr Pepper. Listen as the team tastes the new Dr Pepper Float ice cream and shares some immediate nostalgic thoughts. The team then chats with celebrity chef and Food Network star Scott Conant, who’s in town this weekend cooking up some lobster rolls at the new Omni PGA Frisco Resort. He talks about which legendary Dallas chef inspired him at the start of his career, and if he’ll ever consider opening a restaurant in Texas.
Event info: Scott Conant will be conducting a live cooking demonstration and answering fan questions at the KitchenAid Fairway Club as part of the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship at Omni PGA Frisco on May 26 at 1 p.m. The demo is free to all ticket holders. Get more information here.
