Baltimore chef Chris Ford wins Chicago Restaurant Pastry Competition

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.
