The 24th Annual Pastry Competition Sponsored by Paris Gourmet was amazing.  I spent 2 days photographing the 24th Annual US Pastry Competition sponsored by Paris Goumet. during which I was constantly amazed at what these chefs were able to do with sugar and chocolate. I also consumed an incredible amount of sugar…….and chocolate……and gelato……and cake……
