New York Chocolate Show Pastry Chef Demos - Francois Payard

Yesterday I recommended  some of my favorite vendors at this year’s chocolate show along with some insider tips.  After sleeping on it (yes, I’m always thinking about desserts awake or not) I realized that the best way to get your $28 worth is to attend the Pastry Demonstrations.   Where else can you see a live demonstration by Johnny Iuzzuni, Francois Payard and Nancy Olsen all in the same place? Don’t forget, you get to sample the results!  A complete schedule is on the Chocolate Show site (below) but here are the official DesssertBuzz recommendations:

Cool recs, but to go, I’d have to skip work for two days!
