Bathing Buddha Dessert by Jose Andrés

Pastry Chef Rick Billings of Jose Andre’s Think Food Group contacted us to make a custom silicone mold of Buddha parts to make a dessert that looks like a happy bathing Buddha.

In this case, the whimsical dish is composed of a rose-strawberry flavored gelatin Buddha bathed in lychee foam. The results were so successful, Chef Andre brought his custom silicoen molds with to showcase his dessert demonstration when he appeared on the Conan O’Brien show. Conan O’Brien is pleasantly surprised by the amount of detail on the Buddha head and face. We at Chicago Culinary Fx are as happy as a bathing Buddha that our molds helped bring a smile to the viewers of the show and every guest who gets to enjoy the dessert in person.
