Pastry chef Rebecca Masson is a master of many things - reality television (Top Chef Just Desserts), fluffernutters (those insanely good peanut butter cookies with a marshmallow fluff filling), macarons and throwing benefits for Lucky Dog Rescue.
The annual event, Sweet & Savory, that started out as a small dessert tasting has grown into a lavish affair involving chefs from all over Houston, and even as far as Austin. Offering dishes last night at Ralph Smith Photography Studio, in addition to Masson were Jason Hill & Matt Opaleski of H-Town StrEATS, Ryan Pera of Revival Market, Jason Gould of Cyclone Anayas, David Coffman of *17, Chris Leung of con?t, Phillip Speer of Uchi/Uchiko in Austin (who made a smoked mushroom ice cream) and Johnny Wesley of Killen's Steakhouse. And that's not even including the list of folks helping plate, serve and clean up in the kitchen. What can you say? The Houston culinary community knows how to come together for a good cause.
