WATCH: Del Posto Pastry Chef Makes Stop-Motion Music Video, Featuring Punk Rock And Bombolinis
As part of a staff-wide creative project at Mario Batali’s Del Posto, Brooks Headley, former punk rock drummer-turned-brilliant pastry chef, married his two passions in the music video below. It’s inspired by Devo, features music from his friends The Casual Dots, and documents the creation of their dessert course — including bombolinis, gelato lollipops, crostada, dehydrated grapes, polenta pudding budino, and chocolate truffles, among other things — all served on a cheese grater. “At the restaurant, your initial snacks come out on a cake plate, and your final desserts come on a cheese grater,” explained the Universal Order of Armageddon drummer to Bon Appetit. “We think it’s absolutely hilarious.”
Whimsical, for sure — and a cool, not-precious way of watching pastry being made. Check it out below!
