Sugar Buzz

Staff Contributor: Kate Brown

We just don’t slow down here! On Sunday, October 22nd, PastryScoop.com hosted its bi-annual Fall Conference. With 12 demonstrations and 14 talented chefs, over 200 people listened, learned, tasted, and tried their way around what’s happening on the pastry scene today.

It was a chance to tune up techniques, see what’s cutting edge, and rub elbows with the pros. The chocolate and sugar were non-stop, but it was worth every last calorie. Where else could you learn how to carbonate jelly, how to meld Asian and French flavor and technique for a little dessert fusion, and enjoy desserts from famed restaurants Le Cirque, Chanterelle, and Jean Georges?

From bon bon making, sugar art, plated desserts, cooking making and whole wheat baking it was quite a sweet little Sunday. If you missed it, you’ll have to wait until next Spring, but check out PastryScoop.com’s event listings since they always have something baking.
