Three RI pastry chefs star in Sucrée, La Fête du Chocolat

PROVIDENCE – Three RI pastry chefs shared their baking skills this past weekend at Sucrée, La Fete Du Chocolate at Gracie’s on Washington St. here.

They included Gracie’s own executive pastry chef, Melissa Denmark, executive pastry chef at that restaurant, Ellie’s Bakery lead pastry chef, Caitlin McGuire, and KNEAD Doughnuts’ head baker, Wetherley Hundley.

The team began the evening with savory hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, followed by a seated tasting of desserts with Gracie’s Lead Bartender Sam Royds’ and Liz Smith’s signature cocktails.

The three brought their love of baking and recipe creation to their roles and offered appetizer items such as Hundley’ savory munchkin with goat cheese, chives, Parmesan and cocoa; McGuire’s creation of eggplant caponata, dark chocolate and cured egg yolk, and Denmark’s roasted beets, cocoa crumble, and shaved duck heart dish.

Desserts included a Denmark’s Banana Cheesecake Mousse, McGuire’s Taza Pot de Créme and Wetherley’s Death By Chocolate layer cake.
