We were excited last week to have some very special people visiting us at Chez Dré!

Kirsten Tibballs (you may have seen her on Masterchef with that beautiful ‘Louros’ entremet for the pressure test) came to visit, and with her she brought renowned french pastry chef, Christophe Adam!

Kirsten is one of Australia’s most internationally respected pastry chefs. She has won numerous awards, including a gold medal at the Pastry Olympics in Germany in 2004, and best in the world for her handmade chocolate at the World Pastry Championships in Las Vegas 2004.

In 2002, Kirsten established the Savour Chocolate and Patisserie School in Melbourne. It allows her to pass on her skills and knowledge to both amateurs and professionals, and is the only school of its kind in the Asia Pacific.

Every year, Kirsten and Savour host up to three of the most celebrated international pastry chefs, offering students a rare learning experience. Last week, Christophe Adam was in town with Savour, hosting a select number of classes about entremet, tarts and choux pastry.
