St. Olaf College Delights in “Beauty and the Beast” Feast

Bakers and pastry chefs wow with their creativity and the stories they tell with butter, flour, sugar, and eggs. It’s no surprise, really. It’s a tale as old as time….

Tick tock, it’s Cogsworth the clock, and even Mrs. Potts and her teacup “son” Chip were represented!

Pastry Chef Richard Hays and his Bon Appétit colleagues at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN, had some extra whimsical fun hosting a Beauty and the Beast–themed night in Stav Hall just prior to the release of the latest Disney adaptation. In line with the film’s spectacular dining scenes, the offerings were varied and impressive: a dinner featuring Forest Beast meatloaf and Gaston gastrique, and more — a large dessert display with a colorful array of opulent sweets and a playful cake in the shape of Cogsworth, the film’s singing and dancing mantel clock.
