Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel) announces the appointment of Chris Ford as Executive Pastry Chef. Inspired to the kitchen by his grandmother, Ford was baking bread and testing recipes as a six-year-old growing up in Orlando, Florida. Upon reaching post-secondary-school age, he enrolled in the local Le Cordon Bleu and fell for dessert about halfway through. “Pastry really opened my mind,” he recalls. “There is so much creativity and really no boundaries.”
Ford is thrilled to bring his signature theme of “elegant nostalgia” that pays homage to – rather than reinterprets – classic desserts to Beverly Wilshire’s pastry department. When not busy in the kitchen, he enjoys snapping photos and videos of sweet creations to post on his Instagram account and his blog, Butter Love & Hardwork which has been featured in several publications.
In addition to enjoying Ford’s pastries at THE Blvd or at a Hotel event, guests will be also be able to get a virtual taste by following Beverly Wilshire’s social handles and the hashtag #BWPastry.More posts from October 2015
