Cat Chat 27: Dessert art

Share Button

You don’t have to give me a reason to visit the luxurious Halekulani in Waikiki.

But it’s added incentive when the hotel is featuring a special dessert menu prepared by the acclaimed pastry chef from the iconic Imperial Hotel Tokyo.

Called “The Art of the Dessert,” the hotel will offer special one-of-a-kind creations by executive pastry chef Kanjiro Mochizuki, in conjunction with hotel’s own Mark Freischmidt. These treats will be served during daily afternoon tea service at the Halekulani’s Veranda Tea Room.

We stopped by the hotel’s bake shop yesterday to meet the award-winning pastry chefs — yes, both of them! — and sample some of the menu’s offerings.

I love my job.

I got to try the desserts at the Art of the Dessert event on Sunday. They were all beautiful and delicious! I have a recipe for a dessert that Chef Mochizuki made, if you want to try it. It's all in metric measurements. Better just go to the tea at the Halekulani & eat it!

@DianeSeo I know it was like Desserts in the Afterlife, needed some harp and a choir of angels for background music! The YouTube thumbnail is great too with @Cat looking up and her face kind of glowing haha.

@DianeSeo Actually, no. I should've thought about that! I mean, they're chefs!
