Eat Dessert First!
Gelato, pastries, cookies, cakes, candied fruits…oh my! At Studio B, our award-winning buffet, dessert is on display. In fact, it’s one of the first things guests see as they enter the buffet and a lasting memory for them as they leave.
With more than 4,000 pastry items produced in a single day just for our buffet, not including the 1,800 cookies and 40 gallons of gelato our guests consume on a daily basis, you could say, dessert certainly isn’t an after-thought for us or for our guests!
“One of the best things about our buffet is that our pastry team gets to display their pastry pieces, whether it’s a custom cake they created or hundreds of individual fruit tarts,” said Marco Cossio, Executive Pastry Chef at the M Resort. “The dessert station gives our guests a full view of our chefs’ artistic abilities, while at the same time allows them to be on stage all the time, creating fresh crepes, serving gelato and frosting cupcakes in front of our guests,” said Cossio.
A culinary art, many of the desserts served in the buffet are made in mini sizes that can be eaten in two to three bites. The purpose, of course, is to allow our guests to enjoy many different desserts. After all, Studio B offers six different kinds of cookies, 16 flavors of gelato, and more than 30 types of pastries, cakes, custards and more.
And no detail is spared when it comes to our desserts. Each chocolate mousse pastry is adorned with a candied raspberry and a chocolate swirl. Cheesecakes are drizzled in raspberry sauce. Cupcakes are topped with sprinkles, an orange peel, and gold flaked chocolate. And our signature “M” is hand-painted on many of our chocolate toppers.
