Valley Chefs Mix Up Gourmet Milkshakes Throughout June

Promising to be more gastronomically satisfying than the song "Milkshake" by Kelis (hey, that song isn't about milkshakes!), five chefs throughout the Valley are bringing their custom creations to select restaurants throughout the month of June.

As part of The Dairy Council of Arizona's first "Moo-ving Milkshake Shop," chef Ehren Litzenberger started the event with his featured vanilla chai latte and strawberry banana milkshakes at his Chandler restaurant, BLD, last weekend. Now, four more chefs will keep the gourmet milkshakes moving with flavors like s'mores from Justin Beckett of Beckett's Table and Arizona sweet corn with blueberry crunch from Blue Hound Kitchen's Stephen Jones.

Read on for the full, slurp-worthy schedule.
