Nelson Paz Top Chef: Just Desserts
was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and trained in classic French cuisine. He believes in cooking from the soul and especially loves chocolates because there are a million varieties and flavors to combine. He has traveled the world over learning different types of cuisines. He incorporates French and Spanish influences in his cooking. The five ingredients he always has on hand are chocolate passion fruit, almonds, vanilla and raspberries. If he were a food, he says, "I would be a passion fruit—it has an intense acid and aromatic flavor, but once you blend it with the right fruit it is unique and quickly appreciated by many people."
