Pastry chef prepared desserts are simply the best; there's just no getting around it.
The best cooks -- and even chefs -- have a hard time dealing with the exact science that is baking. As involved as it may be, a good sweet treat is like nothing else on the planet.
With Thanksgiving coming up next week, we figured it would be nice to get a special recipe from one of the best pastry chefs around.
Eric Snow of Cafe Boulud gave us his recipe for his tonka bean panna cotta, sautéed vanilla pumpkin, toasted pumpkin seeds, roasted pumpkin seed oil, cranberry compote, vanilla Chantilly, and white chocolate décor.
Worth the effort? You bet.
