Chef Herbst visits and the results are delicious!
Yes ... but first you have to learn how to make them ... and other fine pastry desserts. Here is Chef Tyler preparing chantilly cream for the class.
Last week Chef Walter Herbst (now retired) returned to MPC and joined our culinary arts students in the kitchen for four days. He chose to teach students how to make choux paste, and then a lot of shapes and extras which can be made with the paste.
The third and fourth days were spent learning how to make delicious, artistic traditional Black Forest Cake.
So ... this does not need a lot of blogchatter ... here are some photos of Chef Herbst working his magic of technique and high expectations. After the basic techniques were shared, it was heigh-ho for creativity of presentation! I particularly appreciated chefs Tiffany and Tina's work producing a mirror.
Every student was eventually successful.
Thanks again, Chef Herbst!
