PASTRY

“LIVE” FROM NEW YORK CITY Happiness is a family and three shops It looks like the title of a film, but it is the story of BIAGIO SETTEPANI who, with his wife Pina and their three children, have made a life for themselves in New York City To talk about Biagio Settepani and his family is always a pleasure. And not just because they are close friends, but mainly because it means telling the story of a growing success, a real passion and a big heart. The story begins in Sicily, specifically in Ventimiglia di Palermo, where Biagio set off for the first time to New York with his twin brother Antonino and his parents. About this first phase, much useful information can be found in the second edition of "Sweet Sensations of Sicily", edited by Salvatore Farina, with pictures by Giancarlo Bononi, for Lussografica (For orders, chef7Bread@aol.com). The family is the starting point of this article because Biagio, with professionalism and passion (in addition to numerous awards), owes much to both his family of origin and to the one he has created with his wife Pina. Together and literally step by step, they "conquered" their America, today boasting three very well established shops: Bruno Bakery in La Guardia Place (in Manhattan), about 130 m2, of which 100 are dedicated to sales, a laboratory of 120 m2 and another 90 m2 warehouse with 20 employees; on Staten Island, there is Pasticceria Bruno Bakery & Restaurant in Forest Avenue (280 m2 total, of which 170 for a pastry and cuisine laboratory, and 35 employees); and Pasticceria Bruno on Hylan Boulevard, with over 600 m2 and 40 employees. It is teamwork all the way: first the

parents and Antonino, then Pina, a woman of great altruism and kindness (qualities that are common to her husband), who never has enough to give. And then there are three children: Salvatore, 25, grew up in his father's laboratory, did an internship with Biasetto in Padua, and now leads the pastry shop on Hylan Blvd; Fina spends her spare time (she recently graduated in marketing) in the other large shop on Staten Island, because she is very good with customers and with training assistants. And the ‘little one’ (so to speak, given that he is 17 years old) of the family, Joseph, has just left for the prestigious Culinary Institute of America (a university his brother studied at) and is quite happy to lend a hand in the laboratory, despite his football prowess. Settepani's pastry making combines Italian tradition with American (and a touch of French), a colourful mix of cultures lived and loved, which lead to an offering of cakes (from tiramisu to the keylime tart with lime cream and pastry), cookies (from Lenten cookies to "diet" ones with chocolate and cherries), single portions, frozen desserts, muffins, jams, bakery products and savoury pastries. But it is the mignons that best express this mix of cultures and techniques that go far beyond the Italy-USA tandem: about twenty mignons and forty single portions, numbers that make them unique in the area; the favourite is the chocolate mousse.

2011 - www.pasticceriainternazionale.com - n. 18


THE “SMALL� OF THE FAMILY Settepani's most recent brainchild, open a year ago, is the Pasticceria Bruno on Hylan Boulevard of Staten Island, now ably managed by his son Salvatore and by chef and partner Franco Franzese. We had the pleasure to visit and enjoy the rich lunch menu, among a crowd of customers, mostly women taking their breaks from local offices and from the nearby hospital. In fact, in all family-run businesses lunches and dinners are an excellent source of income and are appreciated not only for quality but also for the abundance of food, all with a clear Italian influence of course: fried calamari, mozzarella in carrozza, arancini, carpaccios, polenta, pasta of various sorts, salads, soups, meat and fish dishes, Tuscan piadine, pizzas, barbecue sandwiches, not to mention delicious desserts. Customer feedback is tangible and on weekends, especially in stores on Staten Island, there can be one-hour queues to eat. Even at breakfast, rooms are crowded; there are simple and filled croissants (almond, chocolate, cinnamon ... and salted), Danish, muffins, croissants with chocolate cream, as well as omelettes and savory dishes, for the classic English breakfast; Sunday brunch also works well. Eating on-site means customers can get to know the sweet offering, which boosts take-away sales. The offering includes various types of bread produced in the laboratory of Forest Avenue and obviously the super popular cupcake (see article in issue 229) made by the Settepanis in extra large formats: the favourite, known as Red Velvet, sells 150 pieces per week. Services offered include catering (especially for private parties and large family dinners) and take away, with popular sauces, especially the tomato pesto. Lastly, there are several initiatives for customers, such as courses for pastry and bread making at the shop in Hylan Blvd, on Sunday morning for 15 people for $95: chocolates for Valentine's Day, Easter specialties, Italian cookies, colourful cupcakes, ice cream, sorbets and granitas; carrot, nut and banana cake, lemon and blueberries; low-sugar treats, jams and jellies. This success is the result of hard work, credibility built over the years, and entrepreneurial flair, not only behind the scenes, but also in terms of marketing and image. And should anyone ask how two sto-

res can co-exist so close together, Biagio specifies: "Some dine at Hylan Blvd and then eat dessert at Forest Ave!". www.pasticceriabruno.com A united family, three successful pastry shops, and industry esteem: how do you feel when you look back and take stock of the long road covered?

On the left, the pastry shop in Forest Avenue; Hylan Boulevard to the right, working with Franco and Salvatore are 40 employees, spread over two shifts, from 7 to 15.30 and from 15.30 to 22. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners are a great revenue for all the Settepani shops. At Hyland Blvd on Valentine's Day, for example, there is an average of three rounds of sessions for the romantic dinner.

PASTRY When I think of this long journey, the strongest emotion is to see my children involved in our business, happy to continue what Pina and I have built. What does it mean to be an ambassador of Italian dessert in the States, and to be an honorary member of AMPI? A lot, because it allows me to stay connected to my roots and to keep up with the times and trends, building useful connections even with the best professionals in Italy and worldwide. To what extent do the Americans understand Italian tradition? I think there is great confusion when speaking of our Italian traditions in the States: a large percentage of Italian pastry making has not kept up with the developments of the last 15 years. This means Italian desserts are still considered to be tiramisu, cannoli, the cassata and panna cotta, all of which is in some way influenced by American style. Let's talk about gelato: how do you make Americans understand the difference between ice cream and gelato? It is not easy to educate the customer with regards gelato, simply because ice cream is all they know. I believe in tastings and custom lessons, while trusting the work that Italian companies have been doing in these parts (Elenka, Fabbri 1905, Mec3, Pernigotti, PreGel ...). But it will still take some years before we see the results. What are the most popular flavours? The classics, from vanilla to chocolate, including hazelnut and strawberry. And are granitas appreciated? Yes, especially lemon and coffee.

What advice would you give to a fellow who wants to drive sales at a time as difficult as this? I think the best advice is always not to choose short-cuts in order to give the customer the best quality at the most appropriate price. These are times when you have to keep the cost of ingredients under control, carefully looking for the best deals, and minimizing waste. How has the clientele changed in New York in the last 10 years? The general public has greater awareness regarding food, through travel, television, internet ... But it is also more health- and weightconscious, and so spends and consumes less. The crisis can also be felt in your area. What are you doing to face it? Whenever you face any kind of crisis we must find ways to cut costs and reduce waste. We have also reduced the work week for employees to six days instead of seven, allowing us to contain wages. What is the ingredient that you love to work, and what innovative technology satisfies you the most? The ingredient is chocolate, while the equipment that I appreciate most is the blast chiller, which allows us every day to speed up production without affecting quality. What will be the future of the industry, in your opinion? The format will change: family-run pastry shops will disappear and a wave of more modern stores is coming, with an offering that goes beyond confectionery, including sandwiches, salads, soups and pizzas.

THE FLEXIBLE MULTIFUNCTION PASTRY CHEF HELPER

New Boscolo Etoile Academy in Tuscania

Irinox presents the first upgrade of Multifresh®, the exclusive blast chilling and shock freezing system, which combines multiple functions in the one toll. It not only cools and freezes, but manages leavening and thawing. The dynamic mode setting, which provides special product-specific cycles (a pastry setting for croissants, doughs, mousses, creams... and settings for gelato and semifreddo), now has new cycles for chocolate and pralines. Meanwhile leavening cycles have been further enhanced to meet everyday pastry-making needs. For each food type a detailed study has been made of temperature, air speed, ventilation, moisture and time requirements to achieve the best possible chilling and freezing outcomes. Multifresh® is the ideal everyday helper for the professional, simply and quickly providing solutions to the routine intermediate food processing stages. The aim is to maintain original food freshness and this is the reason why the air distribution system has been completely overhauled and adjusted, so that food is handled gently and never damaged. Irinox has always supported and promoted food events in Italy and around the world. At Sigep (pavillion B1 stand 160) it is also the event sponsor of the Junior Pastry World Cup and the main sponsor of the Italian Chocolate Championship, choosing Italy's representatives for the World Chocolate Masters. During the Sirha, Irinox supports the Italian team in the 11th Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie. www.irinox.com

QUALITY FROM THE ROOT Icam places prime importance on raw materials and on the genuine nature of cocoa. The Italian company is present in the areas where cocoa beans have been grown for centuries, working hand in hand with local farmers. This road to excellence sets out from the origins and ends with a selection of extra-dark gourmet chocolates, such as Grand cru, cru and single-origin. Even the tiniest difference in the geographical location of the plantations, the climate, the morphological characteristics of the soil, exposure to sunlight and the genetics of the plantations have a significant impact on the character of cocoa seeds and thus of the chocolate that is made from the beans. This strong link is especially evident in the two Grand cru varieties, Los Vasquez and Los Palmaritos. Made using the Hispaniola cocoa, which comes from individual plantations in the Dominican Republic, they have distinctive aromas, despite how close to one another the plantations are. Los Palmaritos has a powerful, intense aroma, while Los Vasquez is fruitier and pleasantly acidic. Also for the cru and single-origin chocolates, Icam has selected the finest locally-grown beans, identifying exclusive plantations and making the very best of their first-class genetic heritage. The result is a range of superior-quality chocolates: Pachiza (from Peru), a cru with a full, rounded flavour, pleasantly acidic; Dominicana (from the Dominican Republic), a sweetish, melt-in-the-mouth single-origin; Madagascar, a single-origin with a balance between acidic and bitter, with a full, rounded cocoa aroma, and Ecuador, a single-origin with a persistent floral bouquet. Grand cru, cru and single-origin comes in practical “buttons”, available in 1 or 4 kg bags, and can be used for the making of chocolates and gourmet chocolate bars, mousses, sauces, creams and gelato. www.icamcioccolato.it

The Institute of Culinary Arts summons sought after professionals at home and abroad to act as teachers, maintaining as a guideline the excellence of raw materials, and the launch of global food trends, the focus being on the student. Growth over the years has seen the president Rossano Boscolo and his aides expand in various fields until becoming the Boscolo Etoile Academy. A major change took place with the move of the Boscolo Etoile Academy to Tuscania, in the province of Viterbo. Here Boscolo aims to consolidate his position through a project dedicated not just to professionals, but also to amateurs. The City of Tuscania and the Lazio Region have embraced the project by investing resources and placing the premises in a complex of great historic appeal, the former Church and Convent of San Francesco, dating from the thirteenth century, and now suitable as a student campus. The property, which will go to host the courses, offering catering and events is surrounded by the typical landscape of central Italy, where traditional materials are combined with contemporary art techniques. The rooms are open to the public every day: the church provides the link between the Academy and the city and contains the culinary museum, a multimedia library with 200 antique volumes in digital format, shops and local products, books and hardware. In the former medieval convent six high-tech laboratories have been placed: a professional kitchen, two for pastry and bread making, a kitchen with individual workstations for amateurs, a bakery-pizzeria with wood oven, an 48-seater auditorium, plus 2 additional teaching rooms. The partner companies have contributed to the outfitting by providing their machines. Outside there will be in spring a 17,000 m2 vegetable garden for cultivating raw materials, and an open-air amphitheatre for shows and events. Rumour has it there will be about 1,200 professional students per year, and about one thousand amateurs, with 55,000 visitors to the Internet portal last year, and 740,000 web pages viewed. www.istitutoetoile.it

LEGION OF HONOUR TO EMILIA COCCOLO CHIRIOTTI Emilia Coccolo Chiriotti – founder and editor in chief of "Pasticceria Internazionale" and wife of the founder of Chiriotti Editori, Giovanni Chiriotti – has been awarded the prestigious accolade of Knight of the Legion of Honour, an award announced in an official letter from the President of the French Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy. In the letter the President's motives are clear: "the quality of services to France and the attachment shown". Going further into detail, there are obvious references to the work in the sector of technical publishing: for having given value to confectionary the world over, especially the French school, and for having contributed to the development and qualitative improvement of pastry making, giving it international exposure. In addition to the long-time friends and collaborators, those present for this important recognition included many pastry chefs, representing associations from all over Italy and France, Gabriel Paillasson guest of honour, Officier de la Legion d'Honneur, President of the Confédération Nationale du Dessert et des Douceurs and the Confédération des Glaciers de France, founding president of the World Pastry Cup in Lyons and patron of this knighthood. Visit www.pasticceriainternazionale.it to read the moving speech by Emilia Coccolo Chiriotti and to see the full photo report.

BIASETTO IN BRUXELLES Last November the second pastry shop by Biasetto was opened in Bruxelles, following Le Nouvel Espace Gourmand, which was inaugurated three years ago. Luigi, his brother Alessandro e their partners have taken over the famous Pâtisserie Mahieu of place Dumon, which was founded in 1978. 75% of the production sold in Bruxelles is made in Italy, at the Biasetto’s Atelier in Padua, where 32 people are employed and working, as Luigi himself explains, “as in a hospital, with barrack-like rules and chemist-like accuracy!”. www.pasticceriabiasetto.it

EXCITING NOTES OF COLOUR

A brilliant touch of color on confectionery products and a perfect cut at temperatures above and below freezing: Nappages by Fabbri 1905 are ingredients for cakes and semifreddos, i.e. superior-quality transparent icings with a delicate flavour suitable for any kind of dessert. Nappages are available in different flavours, starting with Amarena, the top-of-range that brings Fabbri's emblematic shiny red fruit to professional cake-making; Apricot, with its delicious fruity aroma conjuring up images of summer; the tropical Passion fruit, with its typical tart taste; the Neutral version, giving a shine to cakes without altering their delicate flavour; Chocolate Icing, an explosion of flavour enhancing the gourmand side of any recipe; the classic Strawberry, the scrumptious Caramel with its luscious character, and the ever-popular Pistachio. This year a brand-new flavour enriches the Nappages range: Lemon, a new taste with a delectably tangy hint. www.fabbri1905.com

*Hazelnut oil was traditionally produced in Piedmont, in the Langhe (the hilly area in the province of Cuneo), and it was used instead of olive oil, which was too much expensive for peasant families. Nowdays this ancient tradition revives thanks to the producer Mattia Pariani, from Cortemilia, who extracts oil from the local renowned hazelnut variety, i.e. Nocciola Tonda Gentile delle Langhe-Piemonte IGP. http://pariani.blogspot.com Gianluca Fusto www.gianlucafusto.com

FROM SICILY TO NORMANDY

Palazzolo's family and staff.

The outside of the store in Rouen.

Attention to the environment and food security have allowed the Sicilian pastry chef Santi Palazzolo from Cinisi, near Palermo, to open two stores at Palermo airport and even one in Rouen, the capital of Normandy (France), within walking distance from the famous cathedral. The restaurant is called Tavola Calda Bistro by Palazzolo. It all started when Emmanuel Gillot and Linda Figlioli, owners of Comunico Plus, fell in love with Santi's specialties. Today production takes place in Cinisi's laboratories and is then sent on a monthly basis directly to a deposit in Rouen. Currently on site there is a small workshop where the various products are finished: decorations, brief bakings, and fillings; the possibility of increasing storage space is currently under consideration. “As for future projects - Santi Palazzolo says - we are working on improving the format used in France and a project is underway for the new opening, always with the same company, of a store in Paris."

IN THE WORLD WITH TRITTICO EXECUTIVE Bravo can boast over 40 years of experience in the production of machines for the daily work of gelato makers and confectioners, and the company has grown thanks to business development that expanded from Italy to all over the world. After the consolidation of the European markets through the opening of Bravo France in Paris in 1991, Bravo turned to South America and Australia, where many Italians settled during the last 50 years, and to the Asian markets, offering great opportunities in the fields of gelato production and elaborate confectionery. The success of the multifunctional Trittico® Executive abroad is due to its various programs, enabling to produce gelato, semifreddos, pastry for catering, custards, mousses, sauces, coulis, ganaches, tempered chocolate, etc. It is Bravo’s leading product in Korea and Japan and this expansion enabled to open Bravo Asia in 2008: it was a very important step to consolidate the company’s presence in these markets and to quickly provide them an efficient system of technical assistance, customer service, business and consultancy support through Bravo Trittico Club seminars. After the boom of hotel industry in the Middle East countries, Trittico was well welcomed also there, thanks to its multifunctional programs for gelato production, confectionery and catering. A recent development has been the opening of an office in California in order to enter the North-American market. This expansion has always been supported by Bravo’s presence at international expos, from the Sirha in Lyon (where Bravo is partner of the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie), to the Sigep in Rimini (sponsorship of the Gelato World Cup and of the Juniores Pastry World Cup), from FHA in Singapore (sponsorship of the Asia Pastry Cup) to Intergelat in Alicante. This year Bravo is taking part in the most important events in the East (Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, Sidney), in Dubai and in Chicago. Morevorer, Bravo has formed partnerships with many culinary institutes, from the French Pastry School of Chicago to the At-Sunrice The Academy of Global Chefs in Singapore. It was also thanks to the company’s presence in France and its demanding customers, that Bravo succeeded in giving definition, precision and reliability to Trittico over the years. “We forecast therefore an excellent 2011 – they say – in which we will try to keep the important shares of market we conquered in the last years, and to implement them thanks to all those customers trying our every day the great advantages given by a combined multifunctional machine”. www.bravo.it - www.tritticoclub.com

RELIABLE MACHINES The new RTL range (Labotronic and Pastomaster) by Carpigiani includes efficient and versatile machines equipped with the Teorema Ready system, i.e. remote technical diagnosis and intervention via web. The Labotronic RTL range offers 4 freezing programs (Excellent, Speed, Hard and Simply), a greater freezing customization and a wider differentiation in production. The Defrost feature automatically runs in case of an accidental stoppage during the freezing process, always providing the extraction of frozen gelato and a rapid production restart. It is available in four different models (1030, 1545, 2060 and 30100). Also the Pastomaster range has been updated as RTL: Pastomaster 60 has 5 speed mixing, 7 gelato mix, 4 sauce, 5 speciality and 5 free programs. The special exchange pump, which is located at the bottom of the tank, guarantees a low homogenization (to have finer and creamier gelato), a dry bain-marie system (to avoid burning and thus resulting in constant efficiency) and a low energy consumption, in proportion with the amount of mix to produce. The versatile Maestro allows to mix, cook, cool and temper with 14 programs for the making of gelato, cremolata, sauces and toppings, and 18 pastry and chocolate making programs. The machine has evolved to the HCD version and besides the intelligent and dynamic handling of the production cycle, the Hot-Cold-Dynamic® system modulates the hot or cold gas depending on the quality and quantity of product; it maintains gelato at the right consistency and avoids burning and incrusting. Both the hot and cold are produced by the refrigeration circuit compressor, with four fully integrated circuits managed the by HCD system itself. Maestro HCD is Teorema Ready and thus designed for remote technical diagnosis and interventions via web. Carpigiani has applied rounded corners to its laboratory equipment, including the new XPL range (3 batch freezers, 3 pasteurizers and 2 ageing tanks). The Labo XPL batch freezers have three variable freezing programs, suitable for gelato, sorbets and cremolata. They are equipped with the exclusive Hard-O-Time system to keep the production phases under control and achieve the ideal consistency. The beater’s blade is in POM (polyoxymethylene, an engineering thermoplastic) and has self-adjusting scrapers and no central shaft for the total expulsion of gelato. All models are equipped with the post-refrigeration system that allows to re-activate cold during the extraction phase, to maintain the consistency of gelato. The Pasto XP pasteurizers are mix producers with three levels of pasteurization: 65°C (for milk-cream mixes), 85°C (for milkegg mixes) and 90°C (for cocoa-milk mixes). The tap for extracting the desired quantity of mix has a piston that, after every extraction, sends all the mix back into the hopper, thus eliminating any residues along the pipe. The quality of pasteurization is guaranteed by the Black Out function, which is activated after a sudden loss of electricity or water; the machine calculates the temperature of the mix to resume the operation in progress or to repeat the pasteurization cycle. RTL, XPL and Master HCD control panels have the same symbols and large touch pads with LCD displays and scroll-down menus. Carpigiani has chosen to standardize all control panels, thus enhancing overall functionality. www.carpigiani.com - www.gelatouniversity.com

COMFIT AND COMFIT MAXI Established in 1965 by Renato Selmi, Selmi started its activity as a hazelnut paste processing company and only afterwards focused on chocolate processing, thus becoming a specialist in this field; in 1987 Paolo Selmi joined his father in the manufacturing of tempering and covering machines. The company focuses now on the continuous improvement of machines and their efficiency, guaranteeing fewer maintenance sessions and service, which includes the machines testing at the customer’s plant. Conceiving and design, manufacturing and sale, direct shipment and assistance for customers are therefore essential steps of the company’s production procedure. Comfit coating pan is made of AISI 304 steel and is equipped with an electronic speed control to optimise the coating of different types and sizes of products. The introduction of air into the rotating tank cavity is controlled by a cooling system capable of speedily enlarging the size of products via the introduction of chocolate. During the following phase a resistance is used to smoothen and polish the surface of products and clean the machine. There is a thermoregulator on the control panel which enables the adjustment of temperature to suit the required processing. The technical data of Comfit are: tank capacity 15 kg, hourly production approx. 15 kg/h, power consumption 1.8 kW single phase 220 volt, cooling system 1100 frigories/h. The dimensions are w. 720 mm, d. 770 mm, h. 1420 mm. The technical features of Comfit Maxi are: tank capacity 5060 kg, hourly production 50-60 kg/h, power consumption 220 V. single phase. 2.5 kW, cooling system 1900 frigories/h. The dimensions are w. 1065 mm, d. 1445 mm, h. 1600 mm. Both machines are equipped with interchangeable air filters. www.selmi-group.it

A new generation of professional moulds Silikomart launches the Tortaflex mould line for cakes, desserts, parfaits... in order to simplify the work of chefs and confectioners. The new 100% food liquid silicone mould has the advantages of silicone – flexibility; versatility of use in blast chillers, traditional or microwave ovens; easy product storage and handiness in mould release – and offers itself as an alternative to the metal ring traditionally used by confectioners. Tortaflex cuts down on preparation time because it doesn’t need any film; moreover, it doesn’t require a gas blowtorch to detach the product from the mould when still frozen, keeping its shape unchanged. Another distinctive features is the presence of marks on the sides of the mould, showing the level at each cm, to simplify work. Finally, thanks to the variety of shapes produced by Silikomart, it is possible to match many other moulds, multiform or sixty-by-forty (for instance in the shape of classical discs or half-spheres) to create special inserts, thus offering a wider variety of tastes and creative solutions. Tortaflex moulds are in white silicone and sold with a highly resistant plexiglas 60x40 cm baking-tin/tray. www.silikomart.com

THE POWER OF KNOWLEDGE Dictionary of Confectionary

With more than 2000 words, the "Dictionary of Artisan Confectionary" is sure to provide a helping hand in the confectioner's workshop "Knowledge gives the skilled pro awareness about his work, resulting in well-deserved satisfaction from a revived expertise", states the doyen of Italian confectionary, Fulvio Scolari, in his introduction to the Dictionary of Artisan Confectionary, a new pu-

blication edited by Bibliotheca Culinaria and Chiriotti Editori. Scolari adds: "Knowledge has no borders; it allows those who broadly speaking love to discover their trade – from whatever surrounds them in the workshop, to modern technology, sales, and new trends – to feel richer inside, more motivated and capable of acting as the bearers of a great culture.” Hence the slogan used to promote the dictionary, the power of knowledge, because knowledge, understood as being without boundaries, in a broad and evolutive sense, enclosing understanding, ability and passion, is an instrument and vehicle of culture. This awareness has resulted in this publication by Emilia Chiriotti and Enrico Médail. It is a wide-ranging work, designed for rapid consultation, with about 2000 terms covering a wide range of topics relating to the world of confectionary. Equipment, descriptions of sweets, ingredients, key players, preparation and decorating techniques. From basic mixtures to classical sweets, from the great Italian leavened sweets to simple biscuits, from meringues to pièce montée, from praline to hot chocolate, and even molecular confectionary. From the workshop to sales, from creative packaging to display. The fruit of a long and painstaking work, the dictionary helps find the meaning of terms inviting the attentive and inquisitive reader to delve deeper. The result is a range of languages relating to the kitchen, the workshop and the market; an essential lexicon for all those in love with the world of sweets.

EXCEEDING ALL EXPECTATIONS Barely a year after the opening of their brand new innovation centre, Dobla introduces 40 new eye-catching products under their Chef’s Collection label. Corporate pastry chef of Dobla Frank Haasnoot says: “All these products are handcrafted and unique. At Dobla we want to stay ahead of competition, and we always strive to set the trends rather than following them. The products that we have developed are based around eight different themes, ranging from Honeymoon, Winter to Asian, Christmas, etc. We work with different shapes, structures, colors and finishing touches like sugar or golden sparkles. Take for example the Crinkle, referring to the Honeymoon theme, which has such a unique structure and shine, brightening up any cake. The Rising Sun is mostly unique because of its color, that is not just yellow or orange, but a perfect flow of two different colors, just like the sun”. All the 40 new products, which were introduced to a group of pastry lovers at the Dobla Experience event, are on show at Sirha in Lyon (Hall 6, Stand D40), where. Dobla is also a supporter of the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie. www.dobla.com

CUISINE

THE SWEET AND COLD side of the territory

INTERVIEW WITH FRANCO ALIBERTI, PASTRY CHEF OF RISTORANTE VITE OF SAN PATRIGNANO Young, enterprising, passionate and, as he defines himself, "a bumbling fool", he's Franco Aliberti, born in 1985, pastry chef of Ristorante Vite in San Patrignano, where he works along with chef Fabio Rossi and a close-knit team. Backed by his family, he left his land to chase a dream: to learn from the great masters and become a professional. The apprenticeship took him all over Italy and beyond, during which he met great teachers who have left their mark and have helped him develop. He knows what he wants: to study, learn, observe, interpret and customize. Having chosen San Patrignano, he could get down to business. For him pastry making is passion, fun, experimentation, alchemy: it is the declination of the territory he lives in, which allows him to create his own world of colours, flavours and sensations. All seasoned with elements of fusion, and myriad references, but especially with a good dollop of fun. We met him for an interview. As usual he was brimming with energy and joie de vivre. Let's start with you and your training: when did you realize you wanted to make pastry? I attended the first two years at the Istituto Alberghiero in Salerno, then, at sixteen, following in the footsteps of my brother, I moved to Salsomaggiore Terme, where I finished school. My passion for pastry comes from my mother who always used to let me mess up her kitchen and experiment. Every gesture was a game full of passion and curiosity; it is the same game that I still carry around with me and that makes me love this job. Who has influenced your career most? All have given me something important: the experience in France with Alain Ducasse opened my mind; Massimo Spigaroli conveyed the importance of teamwork; Corrado Assenza, respect for raw materials and for those who produce them; Gino Fabbri, willpower; Gianluca Fusto, a 360-degree view of the world of sweets; Gennaro Esposito, the joy of this work; Leonardo Di Carlo, humility; Gualtiero Marchesi, the importance of always remembering where we come from. And, last but not least, Massimiliano Alajmo, and his family, whose restaurant Le Calandre, near Padua, I worked in for almost four years. It is difficult to explain in a few words what I learned, but there

is one sentence that accompanies me every day and that sums up the best of his teaching: "The last stage of complexity is simplicity." What makes an excellent dessert? The right balance of character, tastes, colours, feelings and the appropriate use of raw materials, so that it can offer its best. What do you look for in its creation? Excellent raw materials, preferably a little-known ingredient to intrigue the customer; the processing method, to be able to respect it without compromising its taste, and the technique that exalts it. How do you create your dessert menu? Over long periods of testing, that can last for years. The starting point is seasonality and local produce, followed by demand and customer preference. When I create a new item I begin with the name the dessert could acquire. I then move on to the design and I decide which plate to use for it. I also think of how to stir the emotions of my customers so that they become accomplices of my work and are left with a pleasant memory. Is there one sweet more than any other that you consider to be your speciality? The classic caramelized puff pastry with vanilla cream and raspberries. What raw materials do you prefer to work with? Spices, herbs, chocolate, vegetables, fruits: anything edible! And what ingredients make the difference in a cake? There isn't one in particular; the difference comes from the soul, the identity comes from the creator who conveys a specific and spontaneous emotional message. How do you seek balance? Through a continuous study of simple elements rich in beneficial properties for our body, such as water and oil, but mostly thanks to many samplings and experiments using different combinations. How important is it to know ingredients and work methods? It is important to know the raw material right from its origin in order to understand its properties and the best time to use it. In addition to this you must have an excellent knowledge of the methodology and techniques of the trade: it is the only way to achieve excellent results.

Plated desserts: what is its underlying philosophy? It's all about getting to the customer using simplicity, lightness, and proper balance all within a complex study aimed at stimulating tastes: sour, sweet, salty, and bitter. This must always go hand in hand with the other senses, placing an emphasis on touch and sight. What equipment and techniques could you not do without? The blast chiller, the whisks, the vacuum machine and a thermometer. If you know the techniques they can be adapted to suit the equipment. The future sees a growing synergy between salty and sweet, cooking and gelato: how do you interpret this? Their fusion will be increasingly important thanks to the exchange of techniques, processes and ingredients. The possibility for the pastry chef to learn more about the savoury world, and vice versa for the chef, is an enrichment that gives a broader view of gastronomy, and it provides the chance to grow and learn more. It is an important step that can stimulate the curiosity and thirst for knowledge and experimentation of operators. Why oil? It is a dressing of high quality that belongs to the Mediterranean tradition. Not everyone knows that fats, along with proteins and carbohydrates are macronutrients essential for the proper functioning of our body: they provide non synthesised fatty acids, called essentials, such as oleic and linoleic acid that stimulate the absorption of soluble vitamins and carotenoids. The oil is composed of 14.5% saturated fatty acids, 73% monosaturates and 7.5% polyunsaturated fats: they have a positive effect on lowering bad cholesterol and increasing good cholesterol. On this basis I tried to understand what benefits this could bring to sweet recipes: it is a vegetable fat with easily digested components, it has a rapid point of fusion on the palate, it is great for fixing flavours, and in some preparations it conveys a sense of heat. I use extra virgin oil with an acidity below 2%, produced by the community of San Patrignano, cultivated on the hills of Coriano, with olive cultivars such as correggiolo, leccino, moraiolo, pendulum and rossina, all hand-picked and cold pressed. Where will confectionary go over the next few years? We will see a return to tradition with more respect for raw materials and a focus on simplicity. Instead of a group of tastes, they will be few and well defined. What do you think of dessert menus in Italian restaurants? Unfortunately in Italy the restaurant pastry chef is not always present; most of the time you are faced with an offer that for one reason or another is lacking in ideas. Lately, though, the importance of predessert and dessert has been growing, facilitating an increase in quality and greater attention from caterers.

What are the greatest difficulties during the preparation of a sweet? Using the same products as others without repeating yourself; keeping one step ahead of them and searching for something beyond what you know. There is a fundamental step in creating a new recipe that I try always to put into practice: be aware of your knowledge but at the same time, be able to detach yourself for a moment, just long enough to create something new. What do you suggest to young people who embark on this career? If there is passion and desire you can go the distance: this of course goes with a lot of dedication, patience, humility, work and respect for those who teach. Do not give up at the first hurdle; in fact any hiccup is a stimulus to continue and improve. Only in this way can a dream come true.

Since the oil has a low melting point, use the same procedure as for a classic pastry. However, in the mixing bowl mix the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Mix with the leaf, then add eggs and vanilla and butter oil. As soon as the pastry is firm place in the fridge for 3 hours. Grate the pastry with the wide part of the grater to obtain many flakes and let stand in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Bake at 164°C with the valve closed for 13 minutes. Allow to cool and pass gently through a sieve: in this way the fine dust is removed and the flakes are rounded to look like pebbles. Store in sealed jars.
