I’m The Avid Baker and I have a long-standing relationship with baking/pastry and dabbling in culinary related adventures which include: writing for a food column in university, working as a part- time apprentice at a bakery and as a sous-pastry chef (Oliver and Bonacini Cafe), as a Culinary Assistant at Dish Cooking School, as an editorial assistant to Chef Monica Glass (Clio Restaurant in Boston) and her blog ‘Pastry Princess’, and taking a few baking and pastry courses at culinary school using a James Beard Scholarship I received from the foundation. I also have my own mini-business where I bake all sorts of delightful ‘made-to-order’ desserts.
As well, I am a freelance writer. I write about Design, Arts & Culture, Technology, Fashion, Beauty, Spas, Events in the city, and of course, food/baking & dining out.
I bake; therefore, I am :)
I hope to continue dishing out tasty tales with my blog.
Happy Baking and Exploring!
p.s. the post “Baking Brouhaha with a Midnight Pie” gives a more detailed run-down of how this blog came to be birthed (not as painful as that just sounded, I promise) and why I like to bake – a lot.
