Hamilton Harbor YC’s Pastry Chef creates whimsical desserts that incorporate many technical components.
As Pastry Chef of Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club in Naples, Fla., Sean Dwyer takes inspiration from a wide variety of sources, ranging from fairy tales to outer space.
This particular dish was inspired by the planet Jupiter. It’s sphere-shaped, with red and yellow coloring, and presented in such a way that it features just enough negative space to give the effect that it’s standing alone in space.
“I love how the holes expose the contents inside while still being very clean,” says Dwyer, adding that the membership has gone absolutely galactic in response to this dish. “The dark chocolate notes from the shell and mousse blend well with the caramel ganache, crumble and chocolate almond cake, which gives a toasted chocolate almond finish.”
