Creation and development
of tailor made
I've always believed that it's what we do rather than what we say that defines us.
I was never much good with words, and I find it even more difficult when I have to talk about myself.
So instead, I'll focus on describing my relationship with the art of confectionery, focusing on some of the most important words that have guided me
on my journey so far.
Creativity. The art of confectionery offers immense scope for creativity and expression. Despite my great respect for the classics, I always felt the urge
to develop more elaborate flavours.
Enthusiasm. This feeling is always present whenever I explore
new gastronomic horizons. Trends, shapes, presentation:
all the facets of confectionery offer sweet food for thought.
Interest. The analysis and deconstruction
of anything new fascinates me and always will.
Experimentation. In experimenting with anything new, outcomes are usually uncertain. But the journey itself is sweet and often full of unexpected surprises,
involving lots of playfulness and unexpected sweet journeys
and fabulous flavours.
Experience. My own experience is important of course,
but that of my colleagues is equally so. Most important of all
is the need to share experiences, to discuss ideas
and contribute to the art of creation, to exchange opinions
and to promote good pastry.
With all the sweetness in life, Dimitris Chronopoulos
