Pink Macaroons

Bellagio Patisserie at MGM National Harbor has these macaroons that are simply too cute for words. Macaroons only have 3 ingredients for the shell, main one is almond meal, then comes sugar and egg white. The filling is made with fruit juice, sugar and apple pectin. To make the macaroons pink we add food coloring at the end of the process. We use a pink natural food coloring and we only put a little bit to make it light pastel color,” says. Sylvain Bortolini, MGM National Harbor’s Executive Pastry Chef.

Strawberry Vacherin

From Coquette in New Orleans, the Strawberry Vacherin with Strawberry Sorbet, Mint-Basil Syrup and Szechuan Pepper Pavlova, made by Pastry Chef James Kubie. This elegant meringue-based dessert is soft and light and perfectly balanced.  “Every year starting on New Years Eve we put on a strawberries and cream dessert because Lousiana is known for its strawberries, especially those grown in Ponchatoula, because the flavor is really intense. One thing very unique about Louisiana is that our strawberry season starts months before anyone else, so we harvest them in winter and get to use them straight out of the gate. So every year we are looking for ways to highlight these beautiful strawberries, experimenting with ingredients and flavors that will really amplify the taste of the strawberries. This year we made that happen with the Strawberry Vacherin dessert, as the lemon, mint-basil and sezhuan pepper all come together to really make the strawberry flavor pop!” says Coquette’s Pastry Chef James Kubie.

Imperial Cake

Chef Nathaniel Reid of Nathaniel Reid Bakery in St. Louis has created a pretty epic cake. You may not think of the middle of Missouri as home to one of the top pastry chefs in the country, but Chef Reid is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, Paris and has been received national accolades such as one of Dessert Professional Magazine’s Top 10 Pastry Chefs in America to Pastry Chef of the Year at the U.S. Pastry Competition.  Chef Reid is known for his cakes like this Impérial Cake with rosé champagne mousse, pineapple-lychee compote and tender almond cake…which also happens to be the perfect shade of pink!
