Vegas Bowl: a sinfully decadent foggy dessert


Vegas Bowl liquid nitrogen dessert

Where Can I Get it?  |  How Do I Eat It?

The dessert scene has been brimming with innovation, and one creation that stands out is the “Vegas Bowl.” With its theatrical presentation and rich flavors, it’s no wonder this dessert has become the talk of the town. So, what exactly is the Vegas Bowl and what makes it so exceptional?

What is a Vegas Bowl? 

A Vegas Bowl is a one-of-a-kind foggy dessert invented by award-winning pastry chef and chocolatier, Jean-Phillippe Maury.  This dessert is not your average sweet treat. It’s an experience. At its core, the Vegas Bowl comprises:

  1. House-made Gelato/Sorbet: Offering a velvety texture and rich taste.
  2. Crème: A creamy component that complements the other ingredients.
  3. Cake: Adding a layer of softness and depth.
  4. Tubed Sauce: Injected for an extra burst of flavor.
  5. Fruits and Toppings: For freshness and crunch.
  6. Hemispherical Crust: Crafted either from meringue or chocolate, encapsulating the dessert.

 The pièce de résistance? The serving style. Once assembled, it is served in a dome-covered bowl that seeps out a fog that seems like liquid nitrogen, but is actually dry ice.  The result is a dessert that’s not just delicious but also visually arresting. The extravagance, the drama, the flamboyance – all attributes synonymous with Las Vegas. Hence the name “Vegas Bowl.” It’s an embodiment of the city’s spirit – wonderfully over-the-top and crazy.

iDessert first introduced the Vegas Bowl concept to the public in July 2015 in their first location in San Diego, CA.

  3. Dive In: With the components mixed, every bite promises a party of flavors.
