There is no award in the world that compares with seeing development in another human being. This is what gets me up every morning.
Jessica Meyerowitz, a student of Prue Leith Chefs' Academy, is working in our Hartford House kitchen for five months to experience as much as possible on the culinary front. While my pastry chef, Delli Nene, was on leave I handed over the keys - or should I say whisks and digital thermometers - to Jessica. What a swell job she did.
Look at these incredible pics of Jessica's 'first' new-age wedding cake (click the thumbnails above to enlarge). Wow, I was impressed; not only for the quality of the final product but for her dedication, time management and sheer guts to get the task done professionally - and with loads of love and attention.
The most delicious, fluffy, red-velvet cakes, eat-your-heart-out lemon meringue, oozing blueberry cheesecakes, hot, spicy doughnuts and mind-blowing chocolate brownies made up this very special cake for Johan and Lorenza. Bride and groom stood in awe of the cake... and I stood looking on like a proud parent.
Oh, and just putting it out there... check out Jessica’s chef jacket available in my "JC CHEF CLOTHING RANGE (females)". Click here if you are interested in placing an order.
