Jacques Torres kicked off summer with an Ice Cream Social.  We invited the media to celebrate with us at Jacques' flagship store on Hudson Street and sample the season's newest ice cream flavors. Hosting the event a few days shy of National Strawberry Shortcake Day, Jacques shared the space with the Driscoll's Berries team who created decadent strawberry shortcakes and a specialty cocktail. Guests were treated to a behind the scenes look at Jacques' chocolate factory, which surrounds the brick and mortar shop, and had an exclusive sneak peek at his new facility in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, which is forecasted to open later this year. 

Here's a peek behind the scenes.
