DessertBuzz continues its coverage of Top Chef: Just Desserts with a look at the judges. Got to the DessertBuzz “Just Desserts” main page here.

As I said in the preview post Bravo picked a really nice selction of judges for “Just Desserts”.  Recently, I’ve been reading up on the newest judge and fellow Greek actually the name is Lebanese, Dannielle Kyrillos from Daily Candy.  It turns out she has excellent taste in Desserts.   In this Daily Candy post from Saturday she recommends an excellent selection of desserts that span from the fancy pants like Jean Georges Chocolate Tasting, to the the off-the-beaten-path: Egg Custard King – egg custard buns.  Impressive.  She also seems to like many DessertBuzz standards such as Spot Dessert Bar and Blue Ribbon Bakery.  There it is.  I like her.
