So you say you don’t have a pastry chef? And that’s the reason you outsource all things sweet for your events? Join Bold Catering & Design’s Executive Pastry Chef Deanna Johnson and Executive Chef Robert Mitchell as they share a few tips, tricks and recipes that can help you to make a few things in house that will generate a larger profit for you, than outsourcing everything. This will make it seem like you have an army of pastry chefs hiding somewhere in the basement. We will share 6 basic recipes that are easy to manipulate, giving the illusion of carrying dozens of options on your catering menus. We will share samples of some of the selections and do a demo on our “Smashed Alaska” dessert station, our updated take on the classic baked Alaska, again no pastry chef or formal training needed here.
