Have you ever heard of "writers block" or needed some inspiration? It happens to all of us, and in the food industry it happens to chefs as well.
Unlike most vendors, Paris Gourmet offers a solution to that problem. A team of chef technicians that service our customers nationwide to answer any technical questions about our products, recipes, consulting, and our favorite... demo day!

"Demo day" is a unique service that Paris Gourmet's chef technicians provide. Depending on your location, the chef technician schedules a date to spend a day in your kitchen to show you and/ or train your staff on how to produce pastries.
Paris Gourmet provides ingredients and recipes for the demo and prior to the day, the chef technician usually discusses and goes over details of what the customer is looking for.
It is a day filled with lots of cooking, photo taking, and the best part... tasting of all the pastries that were produced for that day!
To book a demo and for more information, please contact your sales representative.

Someone once said "Flowers mean I'm sorry and chocolates mean I love you". With that being said and Valentine's Day coming up, what better way to show "I love you" with some chocolate!
But lets be honest, picking up a box of chocolates for Valentine's Day and any occasion is a very typical fashion. Its time to get creative and by creative, we mean chocolate bark!
Best known for consuming during the winter as peppermint bark. The varieties of making chocolate bark are endless and very eye catching!
For more tips, tricks, and inspiration check out the video below featuring our very own chef technician Calogero Romano.

14 Of The Best Recipes From US Presidents and First Ladies
Weird rules that former chefs of The White House have to follow are quite interesting.
The First Lady can hire/fire the executive chefs at anytime.
Presidents can ban foods during their term. After being served brussels sprouts, George W. Bush was quoted "Tell (chef) Pierre to never serve that to me again!"
Barack Obama asked the kitchen staff to brew their own beer from scratch using in house ingredients.
Executive Pastry Chefs of The White House spends the whole year planning The White House gingerbread house (on top of their daily duties, banquets, etc). Baking begins early November and continues the whole month. After Thanksgiving for 4 days straight, they assemble the house. Then in December, The White House gingerbread house is on display in The State Dining Room where over 60,000 guests walk through and view this delightful, eye catching treat!
