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.
