Photos from the competition!
Pastry chefs from restaurants across the nation created and presented eight plates of just one dessert that best represents their signature culinary style. Not only did these talented chefs get featured, but the restaurants they represent also were highlighted and promoted.
Competitors had the chance to incorporate sponsor ingredients into the production of their desserts, furthering networking between themselves and our sponsors. The competition took place on Monday August 26th. The winning dessert is recognized as being the nation’s best dessert.
