Tonight I attended the “The Oscars” for pastry, also known as The Top 10 Pastry Chef Awards presented by Dessert Professional Magazine.  Ten of the best pastry chefs in the US all gathered in one place who, along with teams of 4-6 assistants, composed and plated over 300 fancy-pants desserts for attendees.  There’s no judging or competition here, just lots of appreciation for the skills and careers of these accomplished chefs.

Here are the honorees and their desserts:
