Make a note to watch NBC’s “Today” show Wednesday morning when Sioux Falls pastry chef Chris Hanmer will make an appearance.
The co-owner of CH Patisserie and Parlour Ice Cream House was asked to represent South Dakota in a “spectacular star-studded culinary event” the show is calling The United Plates of Thanksgiving.
The special half-hour show will air at 7:30 a.m.
“They have 52 chefs from around the U.S. come in and do a dish indicative of how they feel about their state or that represents them and their state,” Hanmer said.
While he’s not sure how much he can share about his dish, “it will be a very special French-inspired pastry indicative of what we do; that I can say,” he said.
The opportunity came up on short notice and falls during the busiest stretch for his business, but Hanmer decided to say yes anyway.
“So I’m flying to New York on our busiest week, but it’s awesome. It’s such a blessing,” he said. “We’re excited to do something that represents us and our state.”
