Boston is home to a new breed of innovative restaurants. Feeding off the enormous growth of Boston’s high tech and startup industry, area restaurants are responding with desserts that wow the taste buds and dazzle the imagination. Innovative chefs, like star Dinara Kasko, fill their Instagram feeds with images of their ground-breaking desserts. In a world where integrating math into food excites your appetite, you will use design, algorithms, geometry, digital fabrication, and mold-making methods to create unique 3D dessert creations to be served at one of Boston’s premier restaurants, Pagu!
In this studio, students will be working with Pagu’s founder and chef on creating new high-tech desserts for their menu. Using the combined power of digital design (computer aided drafting, 3D modeling) and rapid prototyping tools (laser cutters, 3D printers, CNC milling), students will learn mold making and casting techniques to produce futuristic desserts. Students will also learn the foundation of pastry making, while forming their own individualized visual and gustation palettes. Bring your appetite, and get ready to enter the high-tech culinary world!
