6 Days of classes with Ewald Notter - Page 2

HI.
The classes were held ad Albert Uster heaquarters. They recommend the Comfort Inn--Shady Grove. The rate that they gave students was excellent, they have a shuttle, you can walk it (if you want) as it's only 1 mile away, the room was nice & the breakfast decent. Make sure that when making the reservation, you tell them that you're taking classes at Albert Uster.

The full 6 days of sugar classes was $1640. It's offered several times a year back to back like that (I think the best way to take it, really). They do it at various locations, from the Notter School in Orlando (notterschool.com) to Albert Uster in MD (auiswiss.com)

Hello Blakecakes,

I am interested in pulled and blown sugar art. I goggle Albert Uster, and it pull up:

"Gaithersburg chef and chocolate entrepreneur Albert Uster died in a plane crash July 25.

The sailplane crash happened in the Swiss Alps, and its cause is under investigation, according to a statement from Uster√Ęs company, Albert Uster Imports.

The Swiss-born chef founded Albert Uster Imports, which produces Swiss chocolates and other culinary ingredients, in 1980. Before that, he served as an executive chef at the Washington Hilton and was one of the founding partners of The Watergate Restaurant.

Uster spent his time outside the office as a glider pilot, wine collector, gardener and philanthropist. He is survived by three daughters, three sons, two brothers and his close companion, Josephine Cooper.

A funeral will be held in Switzerland Aug. 8, and a memorial service will take place in D.C. Aug. 24. The location of the service has yet to be announced, but will appear on the company√Ęs Web site when it is finalized."

Please advise if this is the same person?

Thanks icon_cry.gif

Yes, Albert Uster, Sr. was killed in a plane crash last week. He wasn't as involved in the company as he had been. His son and another gentleman who is the CEO have been handling the business for several years.

It's a close knit company and I'm sure he'll be greatly missed, but I doubt that much will change.
