Foodie Bob read this in the paper recently:
Owner of Hellertown pastry shop wins ‘Sweet Genius’
Alan Pitotti wins $10,000 on popular Food Network show.
January 18, 2013|By Diane W. Stoneback, Of The Morning Call
Pastry Chef Alan Pitotti, owner of Dolce Patisserie, was back at work in his Hellertown shop less than nine hours after his family, friends and customers watched him win $10,000 on the Food Network’s “Sweet Genius.”
Although the 36-year-old chef had just won the equivalent of a Super Bowl for pastry chefs, he already was focused on figuring out how to give his daredevil fans a chance to taste the cake that clinched his victory — It was a meringue-covered, spicy pink peppercorn and wasabi pea cake, with spicy chocolate ganache…..
I was really excited about this announcement and it gave me a great excuse to visit Dolce Patisserie again to purchase some chocolates!
I so enjoy his “beautiful”…. and I do mean “beautiful” candy creations…. that are equally as delicious!
And…. Alan was there! Which is not a surprise…. he loves his work! 🙂
We had a wonderful chat about the competition and his wonderful experience with the show and host of “Sweet Genius,” Ron Ben-Israel.
I’ve postponed blogging about this due to Billboards in the Lehigh Valley not posting that Alan is a “Sweet Genius!”
They show him attending the local community college, but nothing about Sweet Genius!
the Billboards remain the same (to date, now early March, 2013)
I wanted you to know…..
Congratulations! Alan Pitotti….. Sweet Genius!
from the LifeDesigning1 Team! 🙂 So Proud!
