Dessert Buffet with Philippe Rigollot, MOF
ICE is pleased to welcome back Chef Philippe Rigollot to teach his third hands-on class at ICE for industry professionals in NYC. His dessert philosophy is to highlight fruity flavors and not emphasize sweetness; he tries to play with different textures and temperatures, and aims for simple but striking presentations. In this three-day class, you will work with Chef Rigollot to create a variety of his signature entremet cakes and tarts, macarons, and petits gateaux featuring recipes from Patisserie Philippe Rigollot in Annecy, France. Chef Rigollot was awarded the Meilleur Ouvrier de France (M.O.F.) In 2007, as documented in the 2009 movie "Kings of Pastry" (watch the dramatic documentary on iTunes). Chef Rigollot began his pastry career helping his mother’s boss after school in a local bakery. He has worked for two 3-star Michelin restaurants, including Maison Pic, where he met his wife, Elodie, an experienced chocolatier. Chef Rigollot became a world champion in the 2005 Coupe du Monde du Patisserie, and has since been voted best pastry chef of France by his peers.
