Hi Sylvain. Congratulations on your win! Have you gotten a chance to try out the tempering machine yet?

I like Jordi Butron, Ruben Alvarez from Spain, they are great.

As you can see I like to work a lot with tropical fruit and especially with coconut. I try to be my own style a bit destabilized in desserts with different textures.

Hello Sylvain,


Thanks for the kind words. Yes, I was the Exec Pastry Chef for the Grand America Hotel for 6 years. I left in 2009 to Open the new property of Waldorf Astoria Orlando and The Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. 2 hotels, same property. I was reading your thread about airbrushing cocoa butter. I have done a lot of it. I think that Airbrushing cocoa butter for molded Bon Bons has run it's course a little. I was just in the south of France and visited a lot of Chocolate shops along the way. As I have always appreciated the simple purity of guitar cut/enrobed bon bons, this will never fade, I feel. I am just starting to make my own chocolate from cocoa beans that I plan to use mainly for Ganaches etc. And do mainly slab work (guitar) for all my bon bons. If you ever get a chance, take a class from the L'Ecole at Valrhona. These Chefs really know their stuff, real science and practical techniques.

Stay focused and push your creativity.


Be well
