Que Delicioso With Christian Escribà and Patricia Schmidt - WW

Spanish pastry chefs sharing their knowledge and techniques of chocolate creations

I was selected to participate in an exclusive, invitation-only, media session with pastry power couple Christian Escribà and Patricia Schmidt at ToTT.

We were treated to light refreshments with a free flow of drinks before the event started.

At Que Delicioso with Christian Escribà and Patricia Schmidt, I got the chance to make my own delectable and beautiful chocolate creations under the chefs’ watchful eyes!

Chef Christian showed us some of his magnificent creations before we proceeded to the kitchen to make our own chocolates.

Each of the participants was given a crazy skull game set and an apron. After putting on the apron, we watched a demonstration on the preparation of a habanero filling and two chocolate pastes.

The chefs had prepared the chocolate pastes in advance, so we just needed to pipe them into the moulds.

What a fantastic dessert to bring to a party! ;)


Sporty Chef Christian played Russian Roulette with us. One of these chocolate skulls contains a spicy chilli filling. Who would get to taste it? Would Chef Christian be the unfortunate guy?

Two unlucky participants ate the chilli skulls. I was so relieved I was not the one to pick it. *Phew*

Chef Christian and Chef Patricia autographed their books for us and we had a group picture before calling it a night.

The world’s first confectionery extravaganza, Fantasìa by Escribà (22 to 24 August), is slated to take place at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre Halls D and E in closer proximity to Bayfront MRT station for easier access to visitors arriving by train.

A world’s first unique concept bringing together fantasy, artistry and theatre, Fantasìa by Escribà will be a spellbinding showcase made of chocolate, pastry and sugar led by the pastry chefs and their team of pastry aficionados.

Spanning 8,000m² of exhibition space, Fantasìa by Escribà will feature eye-popping exhibitions ranging from a chocolate waterfall, life-sized chocolate animals and a 6m tall wedding cake surrounded by a 10m long edible wall.

  1. That was certainly fun to watch, but nothing for me, I am not good at all in baking or creating sweet things !

    1. You do not need to create sweet things, you are sweet enough. :P

  2. Looks like a magic treat . . . As much fun to make as it is to eat.
