Lipstick on a pig from Tariq Hanna, Sucre - New Orleans

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  Pastry Chef and Owner Tariq Hanna from Sucre in New Orleans, discussing his “lipstick on a pig” plated dessert he prepared for the Top 10 Pastry Awards on Monday night.

Tariq was a very popular figure at the pastry awards and his peanut butter-based dessert was a huge hit.  Watch the video to learn more.

More coverage coming soon.
