In our last interview with Juan Pablo Colubri, talking about Christmas, Juan told us that one of the most beloved ingredients in the pastry in the United States is mint in combination with chocolate. Today he is sharing with us the recipe for his take on this classic flavour combination, quite popular also between the British people.


Christmas is just around the corner. How is it celebrated in USA? We asked Juan Pablo Colubri, who has moved to USA from the UK after becoming the executive pastry chef for Hakkasan USA.


Juan Pablo Colubri is the executive pastry chef of Hakkasan Group USA. His career within the Hakkasan group developed with an incredible speed. Four years ago he joined the group, moved around the restaurants of the group to later become the head pastry chef for HKK London (we interviewed him then) and soon after that he was off to USA for a completely new Hakkasan challenge.
