Pastry Interviews Archives - so good.. magazine

Interviews with pastry chefs who stand out for their work, career, and above all their work philosophy, for their ability to find concepts and ideas that influence the sector and that end up becoming trends. Sometimes their opinions can be uncomfortable or even politically incorrect, against the grain, but they always serve as a guide for many and are supported by desserts that earn professional recognition. Normally these interviews come from the work we do in each issue of So good and become a way to better understand the journalistic, technical, and creative work that is possible to find in this benchmark publication for artisan pastry.
