Who I am and What I do
I’m Cassandra, former Pastry Chef and a passionate food blogger. I love all things food. Cooking is very creative, spontaneous and baking is therapeutic. Let me share with you culinary tricks & short cuts to create amazing tasty food. I blog – for the love of food!
I live in sunny So. Florida with Marc. We live with our rescued English Bull Terrier- Millie. Between Marc and I, we have 5 handsome sons.
I’ve done lots of fun things as a Pastry Chef and I hope to share some of these culinary adventures with you.
Where I come from: City of Food!
I am a transplanted New Yorker, now living in West Palm Beach, with an Accounting degree, a Culinary Baking certificate and a NYC mindset- it’s why I am where I am today.
I am a Queens/New York City girl. Growing up in Astoria/Queens was amazing. The diversity of Queens was like no other. In addition the amazing food choices have always been a constant. Food is life, life is not food. Beware of people who don’t like to eat.
I’ve always been drawn to the Kitchen: planning, sourcing, preparing is very cathartic.
35 years ago, when I would spend my summers in Haiti, I would visit my aunt Ginette who owned a fabulous bakery- La Patisserie in Port-au-Prince. Unbeknownst to me, this was the beginning of my foundation. My Aunt was trained in Pastry and her bakery was the center of all things good to eat. Little did I know I’d end up in the same profession.
Let me show you through my recipes, photographs and my visits with local chefs how much fun cooking and baking can be.
Hope you enjoy my food blog and I look forward to your feedback.
It’s all for the love of food!
