How do you get two busy pastry chefs together? You have to schedule it of course! One of Ron’s friends and colleagues, François Payard, popped in the bakery today for some advice on American style wedding cakes. The talented and well-known pastry chef is giving a lecture over in Europe and wanted to show his colleagues something “new”. So he stopped at the bakery for a chat with Ron. The two talked about different techniques they used in each of their respective kitchens and Chef Francois had lots of questions on Ron’s cake decorating techniques. He also demonstrated his piping skills on a worktable with piping gel. Something my staff will not soon forget and will probably be practicing for the next three weeks.
