He is trained in the classical and contemporary art of pastries and artisanal chocolates and believes that flavors should speak for themselves with a majestic eye appeal. Orlando loves chocolate as its aroma invokes mind-altering senses that tantalize the palate before it's consumed. He incorporates French, American and Native Virgin Island flavors and techniques into his desserts and confectionary creations. If he could have a last meal with anyone, it would be Oprah Winfrey, and he would make coconut jasmine rice, roasted plantains and mahi mahi with his chocolate caramel raspberry entremets for dessert.
