But when I heard that World Baking Day was coming up on May 17th, I thought that holiday festivities would certainly be appropriate. Celebrating the most delicious, flaky, buttery concoction to have ever been dreamt up? Sounds like a legitimate holiday to me. And who better than a world-renowned pastry chef to help us kick off the celebration, right?! The amazing confections at Jean Philippe Patisserie at ARIA are simply stunning. Layered with the finest ingredients, Jean Phillippe’s sweet inventions are a sight to see. Lucky for you, the chef is breaking down one of his most popular delicacies, the raspberry tart. He is giving away all his secrets, people! So, grab your roller and get ready to dust yourself with flour, it’s time to get baking…
