ICE is pleased to present the critically-acclaimed King of Pastry, Chef Philippe Rigollot, M.O.F., for his first hands-on class in New York City. Chef Rigollot began his pastry career helping his mother’s boss after school in a local bakery. He has worked for two 3-star Michelin restaurants, including Maison Pic where he met his chocolatier wife, Elodie. Chef Rigollot became a world champion in the 2005 Coupe du Monde du Patisserie, and received his Meilleur Ouvrier de France medal in 2007 (when he was a featured chef in the documentary Kings of Pastry).
His dessert philosophy is to highlight fruity flavors and not emphasize sweetness. He tries to play with different textures and temperatures, and aims for simple presentation. Chef Rigollot and Elodie now own Patisserie Philippe Rigollot in Annecy, and he will share his world famous recipes and techniques with the CAPS students at ICE. Chef Rigollot will make a chocolate amenity size showpiece, and teach petit gateaux, individual tarts, chocolate lollipops and a modern gateaux.
