Dear Friends and Culinary Enthusiasts,
Happy Spring Everyone! Here in Chicago, the winter weather has broken and the sun is shining with a renewed vigor. We are already busy 'planting' the seeds for many new products available to you soon! This month we bring you a beautiful Showcase showpiece along with a special edition of our Pastry Postcards and two competition announcements from our friends.
Beatrice Schneider & Michael Joy
Using our new 8” sphere mold, Ronald van Haarlem created a stunning showpiece for the Dutch Pastry Awards. Visit our latest page for more pictures and info.
Call for Submissions
Working with our molds and proud of your work? Our monthly Showcase promotes talented chefs and unique projects. Please send Beatrice (our creative director), high-quality photos with a short description of the project or event. Photos of both sweet and savory work are welcome.
Usually, we show a lot of food photos. This time we thought you might enjoy pictures of the exotic location as well. (When the slideshow starts, click on Show Info for more details.)
Abu Dhabi-Unrivaled Quality
Slightly south of Dubai lies the true king of the desert, Abu Dhabi. While Dubai is known as the Vegas of the Middle East, Abu Dhabi prides itself as the cultural capital. As the richest emirate and UAE's capital, it offers sophisticated living that’s hard to fathom. Visiting The Shangri La and the Emirate Palace will give you a good taste of the possibilities!
After you look at the pictures, please visit our custom web page to see the white chocolate slippers, yacht, engraved guitar and pocket watch. Each created in Executive Pastry Chef Ajmal Salim’s kitchen for his fortunate customers. (Chef Salim was the 2009 recipient of Pastry Chef of the Year by the Caterer Middle East Awards. Please find more info in the pdf story.)
