Walt Disney World’s Champion Sugar Artist, Chef Laurent Branlard

Originally posted on the DIS Unplugged: Frequent Walt Disney World travellers may be familiar with the good deals found at the Swan and Dolphin Resort, the “Heavenly Beds”, and signature restaurants by Todd English and Don Shula.  However, they may not realize the hotel complex is also home to one of the Top Pastry Chefs in America (named Top 10 Pastry Chefs in 2003 & 2004).  French Chef Laurent Branlard is world-renowned for intricately designed sugar showpieces, and is a world champion in pastry competitions.  On a recent trip to Walt Disney World, Chef Branlard sat down to talk about his cooking (and art), creating desserts at the resort, and his thoughts on cooking reality shows.  Click here for the full interview.
