Even when only using a few elements, the pastry chef Luciano García, a professor at OTT College and the bakery Almacén OTT Gourmet in Buenos Aires (Argentina), always finds a way to bring personality to his creations. On this occasion he demonstrates that it is possible to have a unique style even with the use of molds, by combining them with elegance and by making subtle visual twists, as in this case with the wavy shapes. These waves could also represent the expansive effect produced by his tireless formative work in a country with such great potential such as Argentina.

And it is, beyond playing with the formats, that the latest creations that Luciano showcases at so good #20 are a reflection of a great objective that the pastry chef has set: accustom the local customer to a pastry that is more balanced and that is closer to the international standards.

In this creation, I’ve played with flavors from my childhood – chocolate, dulce de leche and coconut – with a playful visual concept that takes me back to that period. And I’ve finished with silver sugar pearls, an indispensable ingredient in any child’s cake.
