The Academy of Pastry Arts - Learn baking and culinary by experts

Who doesn't love desserts? In fact, I would wait for the desserts to arrive at my table during buffets. The plus point of the desserts is their ability to please the eyes and palate in one shot. While I enjoy the desserts, a thought process of what ingredients were used, how much effort and how's it prepared makes me always curious. Because I believe baking is an art! I have realized it in a hard way after failed miserably at my attempts to bake a foolproof cake. Well, Apart from Google & Youtube, I always wanted someone to guide me throughout the process of baking and making the most delicious pastry. Thanks to the Academy of Pastry Arts , which aims at churning out budding pastry chefs and entrepreneurs, who no longer need to look for overseas opportunities to master the art of baking and culinary.

About Chef Kimberly Rozario

The pastry expert Chef Kimberly Rozario shortly known as Kimi chef joined the Academy Of Pastry Arts in May 2017. She earlier worked as a Jr. Sous Chef with Taj Group of Hotels. She graduated from the Institute of Hotel Management Aurangabad with awards for best performance in food production. She has been trained across several hotels in Bangalore, Mumbai, and Delhi as a management trainee under the Taj Management Training Program. She was instrumental in setting up the bakery and pastry operations at Taj Bangalore as a member of the pre-opening team.

While the chef explained every step with an utmost explanation, I was impressed with her detailing of the baking and making the perfect pastries. The best part was she was quick and did not waste even a single minute. She constantly waved her wand of experience to a magical pastry.  That's how expert chef is meant to be.

Making of Berry Vanilla Gateaux

The Chef Kimberly Rozario hosted a live demonstration of the specially curated French pastry - Berry Vanilla Gateaux. Before the chef began, the stages/divisions of making pastry were defined. Once the specific items of the pastry are set, then each of them is assembled to make the lovely pastry. The Berry Vanilla Gateaux was clearly distinguished as four stages - Chocolate Almond Sponge, Vanilla Mousse, Berry Jelly & Red Glaze.

Finally, as the chef glazed and garnished with berries. Omg! Isn't that looking lovely? The taste was heavenly as pretty as it looked.

The palaces, forts and rulers, and what remains today is a small part of their dream centuries ago.
