I can't begin to tell you how excited I am in meeting Chef Nick Malgieri. Chef Nick is one of America's best pastry chefs and he is the author of several notable baking books including The Modern Baker, Chocolate andPerfect Cake, How to Bake, among others. He is also the Director of the Pastry Program at The Institute of Culinary Education.
Overall, I was very impressed and pleased with Chef Nick's techniques. His method of instruction was very organized and hands-on. Each group was tasked to prepare the 5 chocolates cakes and he guided us throughout the recipes.
On the menu:
Chocolate Raspberry Cake
Chocolate Bourbon Cake
Individual Almond Chocolate Cake
Perfect Chocolate Roll
