Sweet Charity

Tonight we are bringing our pastry team to Mandarin Oriental to participate in this year's Sweet Charity event, benefiting the Heart of America Foundation, which provides books to disadvantaged children.

Laurent has been working hard in the pastry kitchen, preparing an assortment of sweets to feed the hundreds of attendees. From what I can see, it looks he'll be satisfying one's sweet tooth with chocolate apricot macaroons, strawberry marshallows, almond mini cakes and more.

The second part of the evening includes a chocolate fashion show, sponsored by Des Alpes.  Each of the participating models are wearing clothing predominately decorated with chocolate and sugar, a metaphor for every child's sweetness. My colleague, Minh, has been working day and night, designing the perfect Beauty and the Beast "Belle" costume, as this year's theme is literally classics. Here are a few pictures of the preparation.  Stay tuned for the finished product tomorrow.
