There's about to be a very talented free agent pastry chef on the market. Amanda Rockman's last day as executive pastry chef at The Bristol and Balena will be February 23. Rockman's been working at The Bristol for three years, appeared on Season Two of Top Chef Just Desserts, and made it to the semifinals of last year's Eater Chicago Hottest Chef competition.
What Rockman will be doing next is currently vague, all that's known is she "will pursue other culinary opportunities." One thing that is known is that chef Chris Pandel and the rest of the staff at The Bristol and Balena have an interesting chore in replacing her. More on what she'll be doing next and who her replacement is very soon.
