World Class Pastry Talent to Compete in Chicago

Four top notch pastry chefs have been selected to compete in Season 3 of the Emmy award-winning Chicago Restaurant Pastry Competition video series. The Chef Finalists were picked from a field of pastry chef submissions from all over the globe, selected for their creativity and outstanding plated desserts. “Every year is different.” says event organizer and 2013 Top Ten Pastry ChefJimmy MacMillan. “This season we have new challenges and worldwide competitors. The bar has been seriously raised.”

A new challenge has been added, Artisan Gelato Milkshake, which MacMillan describes as “a plated dessert, blended and layered in a glass with tricked-out garnishes”. Combined with the Mystery Casting Challenge and the Signature Plated Dessert the chefs will have more to manage than ever on their way to crafting original dessert presentations. All this is captured on film released to the web in four episodes. And that’s not all that’s new. This year’s celebrity judges will be superlative pastry chef Antoinio Bachour from St. Regis Bal Harbour in Miami, Curtis Duffy from acclaimed new restaurant Grace in Chicago, and avant garde globe-trotter Will Goldfarb representing Ku De Ta in Bali.
