Conferring with their colleagues is not an option, as silence is the order of the day. Their heads are down, their minds are focused and their real estate is limited to a half table each.

|Sarah readies the ring molds for her chocolate mousse.|
|Kitti uses an acetate strip to transfer a coating of|

everything you'll need for tomorrow's meal.

for her dessert.
