“Gluten-free is awesome!” says Johnny Iuzzini after devouring Michelle Tampakis’s dessert

19 Jun 2010, Posted by Niko in Pastry Events, Top 10 Pastry Chefs of 2010 Awards

Johnny Iuzzini like's Michelle's Gluten-free trio

Michelle Tampakis gluten-free trio

Gluten free desserts have come of age.  I saw proof on Monday night:   I watched Johnny Iuzzini swoop into kitchen 501 at the 2010 Top Pastry Chef Awards and absolutely scarf down the gluten-free Trio prepared by Michelle Tamapakis.   After eating the first third he proclaimed “Gluten-free? That’s awesome! It’s delicious”

So that’s two giant steps forward for Gluten-free desserts in one night, the first being Michelle Tampakis choosing to prepare a Gluten-free dessert for the awards and nailing it.

In case anyone was wondering what DessertBuzz thought of the trio, I thought it rocked too.  The sushi-like, carrot cake piece was outstanding.  Check out the video below to see Michelle serve the trio to Johnny Iuzzini and to hear more details about the trio.
