As executive pastry chef at the White House for 25 years, Roland Mesnier was responsible for creating thousands of elegant, delicious and dazzling desserts for presidents and their families, including Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Mesnier worked to exacting standards, and insisted all desserts in the White House would be made in house. Once he even made 1500 cookies without any assistance, and another time created a half-ton of fruitcake by himself. Mesnier prepared hundreds of desserts for State Dinners over the years, never once making the same dessert twice. Find out how he did it and hear more fascinating stories at Crest Theatre in Delray Beach.
