Lessons from a Pastry Chef
My friend's daughter, Rosie is a recent graduate of the Baking and Pastry Arts program at the prestigious Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island. Tyler Florence is an alum! She earned her Associates degree and is heading back for her Bachelor's degree. On Saturday, I threw a "learning" party where my friends and I baked with this newly minted pastry chef!
Instead of bringing her beautiful portfolio to the party to impress all the guests, Rosie brought this Totally Awesome bread she made! Rosie's got skills.
Chef Rosie completed a study abroad program in France during her studies. Every great chef needs to be able to teach others the craft, and Rosie did a great job at the party! We made two of her favorite items: entremets and breads!
Chocolate Mousse entremets. It is like eating delicious chocolate ice cream but it's not frozen! And we made it ourselves! Even better!
