Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2009
Award-winning Pastry Chef Kristy Choo has put her designs on Spring with stunning new macaroon flavors and architecturally inspired designs for her Easter eggs. Inspiration often comes from the season or even a simple conversation. "Being the pastry chef and owner allows me to be creative on a whim. I like to surprise the customers with new flavor combinations, new designs, and even re-interpretations of their favorites," Choo explains.
The patisserie's macaroons were recently featured in Departures magazine's round-up of the world's best macaroons. Flavors include Rose, Caramel Sea Salt, Chocolate, Vanilla, Cream Cheese, Violet Cranberry, Wasabi, Yuzu, Tea, Pistachio, and Ume.
