Chef Mesnier enjoyed 25 years as Executive Pastry Chef at the White House, serving five different presidents. From blown sugar baskets to gingerbread houses, a pastry chef remembers the stunning desserts he created for White House State dinners, formal events, and family celebrations. Chef’s new memoir filled with color photographs of these one-of-a-kind creations along with stories about the people and places that inspired them.
Chef Mesnier is renowned for his holiday displays such as an elaborate gingerbread White House he created for the State Dining Room at the White house and, more recently, for the fabulous gingerbread Mount Vernon Mansion he created at George Washington's Mount Vernon.
