Antonio Bachour's Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta with apricot

Top New York City Pastry Chefs

Pastry Chef Antonio Bachour preparing his macarons for service

On Monday night I attended the “The Oscars” for pastry, also known as The Top 10 Pastry Chef Awards presented by Dessert Professional Magazine. Ten of the best pastry chefs in the US all gathered in one place who, along with teams of 4-6 assistants, composed and plated over 300 fancy-pants desserts for attendees. There’s no judging or competition here, just lots of appreciation for the skills and careers of these accomplished chefs.

Here’s a video of Executive Pastry Chef Antonio Bachour from Quattro in New York and Miami, discussing his vanilla bean panna cotta with apricot sorbet he prepared for the Top 10 Pastry Awards on Monday night. This dish had over 11 different components!

Antonio splits his time between the Miami and New York branches of Quattro and is always making up new dessert creations. You can try Antonio’s desserts in New York City at Quattro in Soho.  Watch the video to learn more.
