Dessert Art by Chris Cordeiro

Pastry chef, Chris Cordeiro creates artwork for Clio. Desserts that burst with color, flavor, and inegnuity. When I first met Chris, I was interviewing Todd Maul in what is called "the dungeon"  by Chris and Todd, but I see it as more of a space where artistic and culinary expertise meet hand in hand.  Considering that dessert is my favorite meal, I was curious about the process involved with designing and creating desserts for one of the top restaurants in Boston. After dropping in for a dessert tasting, and a photo shoot, I enjoyed gathering some information to share with you!  Enjoy the photos and be sure to stop in at Clio to enjoy a Chris Cordeiro original. He is leaving Clio on September 1st and will be heading to Persimmon in Bristol, RI. where he will be focusing on his true passion, savory dishes. I will be sure to catch up with Chris in his new role, but will miss his innovative desserts at Clio.
