This blog is a love letter to the grit and grace of the pastry chef's craft
The Chef Iso Pastry Blog was founded in 2016 as a living, breathing gallery of pastry art. It showcases the process, tools, and techniques of the trade in a series of mesmerizing videos. Each post is a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds. It asserts that pastry is as much an art form as any other medium and draws inspiration from fashion, fine art, and film. The blog welcomes beginners and experts alike to indulge in the art and science behind haute pâtisserie.
Please feel free to explore the site and if you have any further questions, email [email protected].
