A Sweet History

The legacy of the pastry team at The Omni Homestead Resort is nearly as impressive as the resort itself, particularly the past 100 years. In April 1976, Roland Mesnier, a native of France, came to the United States and became the executive pastry chef of the resort. Three years later, First Lady Roslyn Carter appointed him as the White House Executive Pastry Chef. His long career there made him the longest tenured chef to serve in the White House.

Assistant Pastry Chef Michel Finel, who had worked alongside Mesnier, was promoted to executive pastry chef at The Homestead, a position he held for more than 40 years. During his time at the resort, he competed in several pastry competitions and in 1989 placed in the top five in the World Cup Pastry Competition in Lyon, France.

Today, the pastry team is led by Oscar Bonelli, of Bolzano, Italy, who began his pastry career at the young age of 14 in a small bakery in Italy’s Fassa Valley. Bonelli’s talents were further honed through several apprenticeships, degrees and master classes as well as positions in Miami, Florida.

To celebrate the 250th anniversary of The Omni Homestead Resort, Bonelli and his team will create and serve a different cake each day in 2016 during the Afternoon Anniversary Celebration which will begin at 2:50 pm. This calendar of delicious cakes pays tribute to the flavors of the season while also acknowledging some of the nation’s lesser known holidays, such as National Carrot Cake Day.

During VEDA’s Fall Conference, the following cakes will be featured:

  • Wednesday, September 21, 2016 – White Cake with Cherry S’mores
  • Thursday, September 22, 2016 – Chocolate Cake with Mango Strawberry
  • Friday, September 23, 2016 – Carrot Cake with Lime Coconut Cream Cheese
