Top 10 Pastry Chef Awards Highlights
BY KATHY YL CHAN
Dessert Professional magazine hosted an elegant, sugar-filled fête in honor of its 19th Annual Top Ten Pastry Chefs in America Awards. Cherry-picked from states across the country, awarded pastry chefs arrived with a team of sous chefs to showcase their finest desserts. Notable New York pastry chefs, such as the stunning Fernanda Capobianco, of Vegan Divas, Ron Ben-Israel, Pichet Ong, and Johnny Iuzzuni, showed up to support fellow NYC pastry chefs receiving honors. From macarons to petit tarts to cake truffles to custard meringues, we devoured everything—with Champagne, of course.
