A French pastry chef once said that you might have an incredible experience at dinner, but “it’s the dessert that you’ll go to your dreams on.”

Pastry chefs are much revered in France, the capital of all things culinary. In America, they’re just now getting the exposure other chefs have seen for some time.

I talked with several local pastry chefs, including Cafe L’Europe’s Stephanie Steglia, and got their recipes for Mom for today’s cover story in the Sun Sentinel. Read the interviews and recipes here.
