2 weeks before the shoot, we learned Chronicle chose a photograper in Brooklyn in mid-May at a time I would be teaching in LA and my partner at a book event in Oklahoma. Who would watch over the shoot and make sure the baby candy bars were properly cared for?? Thank you, Chronicle Books, Inc., for taking good care of them.

The final assignment of LCBK 212 Advanced Pastry Techniques class is to make a chocolate centerpiece. For most students, this is the first time in the Le Cordon Bleu program they must create an artistic design, temper (pre-crystallize) chocolate for large structural pieces, use new techniques for chocolate molding, modeling, painting and construction. Their work was colorful, creative and delightful. When I asked what they learned in the process, they responded, “Chocolate is dirty.” “It is delicate.” “It takes a lot of patience.” “Chocolate can be anything you want it to be – all you need is your imagination.”
Congrats to “D” shift pastry students Amanda, Raul, Lili, Kellyn, Liana, Christina, Priscilla, Lemons, Jen-Bunny, Ashley, Tori and Denise.
