Baltimore chef Chris Ford wins Chicago Restaurant Pastry Competition

Chicago RestaurantsDining and DrinkingRestaurantsTelevision IndustrySatellite and Cable Service

Watch Four Seasons Baltimore executive pastrychef Chris Ford in the final and concluding episode of the Chicago Restaurant Pastry Competition, a web-based video series.

Ford competed against three other chefs in the competition, a single-day event where finalists are asked to make eight servings of an original, creative, plated dessert. The chefs also competed in a mystery challenge where they were asked to create an inventive, molded gelato.

This was the second year for the competition and web series, which focused on Chicago-based chefs the first year.

The goal of the competition, producers say, is to showcase the reality of a pastry chef kitchen, rather than the drama and glamour shown on cable television.
