OFF

to the Races
Hundreds of pounds of laminated dough and Guittard Chocolate made their way across the country to Louisville, Kentucky,
earlier this spring for the composing of premium pastries and
fine chocolates to be served to guests who attended the 145th
running of the Kentucky Derby. This complex and highly coordinated project involved Guittard Chocolate Company pastry
chefs in Los Angeles and Chicago and 28 culinary students and
the chef/instructor at Pennsylvania College of Technology in
Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The end result of the near monthlong "adventure" proved a sweet victory for all.
"I've been involved in the Derby for 13 years. This was a level of
bakery and pastry that is rarely seen ever," says Penn College's
Charles Niedermyer II, supervising chef-instructor on site. "The
Derby is one of the mega sporting events in the world. It's way
more than a 2-minute horse race. It's about socializing, fashion
and dining. And when it rains, people eat a lot."
It was the second consecutive Derby for Chef Donald Wressell,
Guittard's Executive Pastry Chef who's based in Los Angeles,
and this year he brought along Chef Josh Johnson, Guittard's
Pastry Chef who's based in Chicago.
An estimated $13.5 million in foodservice revenue was tallied in
three days at the 2019 Kentucky Derby, which is handled by hospitality partner Chicago-based Levy Restaurants, part of Compass
Group, one of the leading foodservice companies in the world.
The industrial kitchen located at Churchill Downs, which is
lenge for producing delicate pastries and fine chocolates. The
pastry chefs made it happen with a creative work-around that
involved a true team effort.
Johnson made up laminated dough at the College of DuPage in
Chicago, stored the dough sheets in a chest freezer and loaded
up for a 5½ hour drive to Louisville. "I made chocolates in Los
Angeles," Wressell said, "and hand carried them on the plane."
