Johnson & Wales University (JWU) Baking and Pastry students Frank Carrieri (Lindenhurst, NY), Kristina Browning (Pawtucket, RI), and Emily Donlon (Clifton, VA), members of the university’s Student International Pastry Team, earned a first place gold medal at Niagara College’s Canadian Food and Wine Institute’s prestigious international student pastry competition called Decadence. Students from Canada and the United States competed in the competition that showcased just two ingredients: chocolate and icewine. JWU’s faculty coaches were Chefs Tim Brown (Cumberland, RI) and Stacy Mirabello (Boston, MA). Other participating colleges were: Fleming College (Ontario), Niagara College (Ontario), and The Pennsylvania School of Culinary Arts. The JWU team impressed the judges with a chocolate showpiece, chocolate entremets, molded and enrobed bonbons, and three individual desserts that were created and completed over the course of the two-day competition.
