#7 Desserted Dublin

Broadcast media travel expert Stephanie Abrams takes viewers on a tour of The Merrion Hotel in Dublin, Ireland. Meet General Manager Paul MacCann and Head Pastry Chef Paul Kelly. Stephanie meets Chef Paul in the Merrion's Garden Room Restaurant to plan a midnight visit to the hotel's Pastry Kitchen where nightly preparations result in an artist's palate of colorful sensational pastries freshly baked during the night for morning meetings and events around the hotel and breakfast in the Garden Room for guests. Stephanie's encounter with Pastry Chef Paul started after breakfast at the hotel when Stephanie was compelled to meet the person in charge of producing A-1 Amazing croissants which, in general, can ONLY be found in France with rare exception. "These were incredible and authentic croissants and not the doughy, bready, overly sweetened things they call croissants in Italy, Spain, the US and elsewhere where you don't get flakey exteriors and honey-combed interiors that are light and delicious. I had to meet the baker-in-chief responsible for these works of art!" Stephanie says. WARNING: Do not watch this when you are hungry as it may result in binge eating!
