My name is Russell Karath and I am a Pastry Chef. I created this blog because I want to share my experience, views, and opinions about modern pastry. I have a strong passion for the highest quality ingredients I can find, whether it be the best chocolate (Valrhona or Amedei), or the freshest produce. My goal is to make people happy.
That being said, I have found that by using modern techniques and ingredients you can transform many different foods into fascinating new flavors/ textures. By having the knowledge of how each ingredient works in a recipe is crucial for the success of the final product. If you know this you can start to manipulate the ingredients to achieve something new.
