The shakes are high this August as Shake Shack celebrates their 4th Annual Great British Shake Sale in support of Action Against Hunger.
This year, Shake Shack have teamed up with renowned pastry chef Dominique Ansel – named World’s Best Pastry Chef 2017 – and Dominique Ansel Bakery London to introduce a new limited-edition shake for the occasion, The Banoffee.
The Banoffee features fresh, hand-spun vanilla custard blended with caramelised bananas, Dulce de Leche, Speculoos biscuits and a hint of sea salt, topped with Chantilly cream and Speculoos crumbles.
The Great British Shake Sale is an initiative taking place at Shacks throughout the UK from 1st – 31st August. The goal is to raise awareness and funds for Action Against Hunger, a global charity committed to saving the lives of malnourished children in over 40 countries.
Anyone who visits a Shack and donates £2 or more to Action Against Hunger in August, will receive a voucher for a complimentary hand-spun shake on their next visit (valued at £5.25). The 4th Great British Shake Sale follows the record breaking success of Shake Shack’s 2017 Shake Sale in the US which raised an incredible $632,544.
Teaming up with Dominique Ansel continues Shake Shack’s commitment to collaborating with the world’s best, from Massimo Bottura, the world renowned Italian Chef, to a pop-up with Momofuku in Toronto and working with St John Bread and Wine here in London.
“The Great British Shake Sale has become such a meaningful tradition for the Shake Shack family,” says Randy Garutti, Shake Shack CEO. “Action Against Hunger’s work to help end world hunger is more important now than ever, and we’re so grateful to team up with them again this year.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with the incredibly talented Dominique Ansel for this year’s Great British Shake Sale,” says Mark Rosati, Shake Shack Culinary Director. “Nothing is more exciting for us than creating something fun and delicious with a friend that we respect so highly to support a great cause – I can’t wait for London to check it out!
“We’re thrilled to be teaming up with our friends at Shake Shack on this special collaboration,” says Dominique Ansel. “Over the years, we’ve worked with Shake Shack on a number of initiatives that give back to the community, starting in New York and then in Tokyo, and I’m glad to be continuing that tradition with our team at Dominique Ansel Bakery London to create something that’s uniquely British with our Banoffee shake for the Great British Shake Sale.”
