Cat Chat 27: Dessert art

You don’t have to give me a reason to visit the luxurious Halekulani in Waikiki.

But it’s added incentive when the hotel is featuring a special dessert menu prepared by the acclaimed pastry chef from the iconic Imperial Hotel Tokyo.

Called “The Art of the Dessert,” the hotel will offer special one-of-a-kind creations by executive pastry chef Kanjiro Mochizuki, in conjunction with hotel’s own Mark Freischmidt. These treats will be served during daily afternoon tea service at the Halekulani’s Veranda Tea Room.

We stopped by the hotel’s bake shop yesterday to meet the award-winning pastry chefs — yes, both of them! — and sample some of the menu’s offerings.

I love my job.
