Gale Gand adds sweetest touch to MORE
WHAT will set MORE (One E. Delaware Pl., 312-951-0001), the sexy Gold Coast cupcake spot, apart from other cupcakeries around town when it opens in mid-May?!
They've got Gale Gand, the award-winning pastry chef and partner of TRU (676 N. Saint Clair St., 312-202-0001), as a consulting chef. The multiple James Beard award winner—including for Outstanding Pastry Chef—is designing a rotating collection of more than 30 varieties of the ultra-moist cupcakes.
Look for twists like ganache-filled chocolate, passion fruit poppyseed, pink grapefruit and creme brulée. Savory flavors, such as cracked pepper and parmesan, pear, bleu cheese and port, corn and bacon and maple, will also be featured. Of course, you'll also be able to indulge in more conventional flavors like chocolate, white, yellow and lemon.
Yum, just yum!
