The Pastry Chef

The Pastry Chef

And here she is, Diana Nordin, the pastry chef from my favorite cafe. In the kitchen at Malmens konditori, with flowers and the winners check for 5000 SEK. She designed the winning pastry that you saw in my post yesterday. The official Haninge pastry will now be served at café's around Haninge for the next year. When I arrived to the cafe yesterday the owner, Henrik was very happy, he showed me a diploma that now sits on a wall at the cafe. Andrea, the head waitress, was also a bit excited. So after enjoying a quick cup of coffee I had time to take a portrait of the woman that bakes all the tasty pastries that I have enjoyed here for the last year or so.

Nice to see the winner in her daily surroundings. It must be a worldwide trend. The sudden interest in food by tv and media. But we gain from it.

Nice shot of a worthy winner.

I hope that they will bask in the glory of their achievement and post that check somewhere.

I'm yet to try the pastry myself, but my friend Jim ate the other day. He said that it was called an Apple Canoe. And that it was very tasty.

Pastry chefs are the best kind of chefs I think.. She looks so happy Steffe and must be very pleased that you talked then into entering the competition.

PS. I wonder how pastry chefs stay so slim!

Steffe, this was the neatest story!! Especially the part about you mentioning the contest to Henrik who at the last minute mentioned it to Diana!!

A quick google conversion of SEK to US dollars shows she was well rewarded for her last minute efforts!
