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.
