Meet the Top Pastry Chefs in America

Every year in New York City, Dessert Professional magazine celebrates its picks for the Top Ten Pastry Chefs in America. The definitive list, now in its twenty-second year, honors some of the most talented pastry chefs in America, as well as inspiring all pastry professionals to strive to ever higher levels of creativity and technical mastery. At La Venue in NYC, the exuberant honorees presented a walk-around tasting that left no doubt as to why they were tapped for this year's prestigious honor.

Check out this slideshow for a peek into the exclusive industry event, held each year in June, and join us in congratulating these super hard-working chefs who give it their all to give us all our favorite treats, sweets!
