"Birch" dessert from Corton- Gawle's signature dish?
The DessetBuzz copy editors are on strike until I increase their macaron stipend–so it’s going to be one more day until we look at Corton’s desserts. Until then here’s some older content that was popular:
Yannis Janssens Foret Noire: Manjari, Kirsch Chantilly and Griottines

Last night I had the pleasure to attend the awards for the Top 10 Pastry Chefs in America presented by Dessert Professional Magazine at The Institute of Culinary Education. I was truly blown away by the quality of each and every dish – there was not one weak dessert. Even though each chef and their team had to prepare over 300 servings it didn’t seem to deter them from making really involved creations with many components (see home made chocolate covered pop rocks). Without exception, these were some of the most spectacular desserts I have ever eaten. Over the next few days (weeks?) I’ll be posting some video and going into more depth about some of the desserts. The first wave of pictures are below. Enjoy.
