Hypnotist Showcase by Maura Metheny & Dan Forgey

Congratulations to Chefs Maura Metheny and Dan Forgey of Norman Love Confections, who at this year’s Pastry Live event mesmerized the judges and audience with their outstanding chocolate showpiece titled “The Hurwitz Hypnotist”. Inspired by the sculptures of Jonty Hurwitz and the work of the illusionist Harry Houdini, the team’s interpretation of the theme “Art of Illusion” captivated both judges and the audience. They transformed Chocolate into a brilliant magic show based on perspective, as at every angle the audience saw a different aspect of the showpiece. Winner of Best Overall/Most Excellent Showpiece and Best Chocolate Showpiece, fantastic work!
