Where To Travel For The Best Pastries In The United States.

As of May 7th, the most outstanding pastries in the United States are in Birmingham, Alabama at the Highlands Bar & Grill. On this day, their senior pastry chef, Dolester Miles, received the coveted 2018 James Beard Award for best pastry chef confirming what Birmingham locals long suspected: They possess one of the greatest pastry talents not only in the South but in the United States.

The 61 year old, self-taught chef crafted world-class pastry for over 30 years before nabbing her first James Beard Award.  She has been whipping up mouthwatering desserts worth traveling into the deep south for including a sinful Chocolate Hazelnut Dacquoise, flawless Banana Cream Pie, and summery Strawberry Cobbler.
