Oh my… Sugar High at Gips

Toasted pistachio crumb, deconstructed key lime pie, thyme pannacotta… todays reality cooking shows have introduced us to a whole new world of dessert terminology and the creations they make are somewhat mind boggling. Imagine how thrilled we were to discover a young and amazingly talented local chef creating similar masterpieces on a daily basis right here at Gips Restaurant in Toowoomba. Chef Katie has been using her imagination to assemble some of the most delicious and exotic desserts you will find for over 3 years now and she told us that while she uses cooking shows and magazines for inspiration, she always ensures that each dessert has a little something extra to set it apart by the way of taste or texture. Not only do Katies desserts look amazing on the plate, the taste, well, simply divine. GIPS2 Verdict: Gips is a Toowoomba icon and they have a fabulous reputation for quality service and beautiful food, true. But next time you visit Gips, we would highly recommend you save room for dessert or try the menu backwards…starting with Dessert Pictured in this post: WATTLE + VIOLET PANNA COTTA wattle seed panna cotta, violet semi freddo + jelly, malto POPPY SEED + WILD STRAWBERRY + SOUR CREAM poppy seed terrine, marshmallow, microwave cake, wild strawberry, sour cream ice cream, rosemary YUZU + PISTACHIO + BASIL pistachio cake, yuzu curd, basil lime sorbet, raspberries, meringue (GF/DF/V/) GIPS3
