About pastry studio
A place to study. To experiment. To perfect. To play. A laboratory of sensation, a place of natural light, paintings, flowers and books, rulers, paper, fabric and music. The highest form of Table worship. Inspiration all day.
I have a reverence for classical pastry technique as well as endless curiosity for international traditions and modern juxtapositions. I’ve had the great privilege of working in the pastry kitchens of some of the region’s best restaurants and patisseries where I found a wealth of mentors, chief among them Mother Nature.
Pastry chefs are part child, part sculptor, soul soother, detail beast, pleasure-seeking nomad in search of the perfect little black dress. I favor outlaw pastry – simple, fresh, custom, minimally sweet handmade objects of desire formed in an open space where nothing comes between the art and the practice.
I am a beauty commando. This is my pastry altar.
