MATC Hosted Baking Demonstration and Book Signing With Renowned Pastry Chef Jacquy Pfeiffer
Pfeiffer’s book, co-authored with Martha Rose Shulman, was released on Dec. 3.
Pfeiffer has won many awards and is well known in the field. Some highlights include induction into the Pastry Hall of Fame by Dessert Professional magazine in 2011 and into the Chicago Culinary Museum’s Chefs Hall of Fame in 2012. In 2009, he was featured in the “Kings of Pastry” documentary directed by D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus. The film follows Pfeiffer as he returns to France, where he apprenticed, to compete against 15 of France’s leading pastry chefs in a three-day baking competition, which included a range of activities such as making chocolates and six-foot sugar sculptures.
The events were sponsored by MATC’s Baking and Pastry Arts program.
