Top 10 Pastry Chef honoree Heather Carlucci-Rodriguez of Print

08 Jun 2011, Posted by Niko in Pastry Events, Print, Top 10 Pastry chefs of 2011

On Monday night 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’s a video of Heather Carlucci-Rodriguez discussing her chocolate bread at the Top 10 Pastry Awards on Monday night. Heather uses locally sourced honey through Catskills Provisions and ricotta from Salvatore Brooklyn.  And this wasn’t even the main part of her plated dessert!  Watch the video to learn more.
