Aspiring Pastry Chef stops by Cornucopia at Oldfield
Today Ian Chin stopped by to share some of his homemade Southbury Bread. Ian is our neighbor in the Historic District on Main Street N. in Southbury.
Ian is an aspiring pastry chef who has just returned from a summer at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and has been baking something new each day. He prepared his own starter yeast using local water. He also brought by three pain aux raisins that were divine. Ian will be returning for his senior year at Syracuse University before returning to Paris to complete schooling in the culinary arts. We wish Ian well and hope he stops by to share more pastries with our guests when he is back in Southbury.
