About Us

We started this blog to serve a very simple purpose: to be a means for the discussion and illustration of ideas on pastry, confectionery, bread baking and cooking (and anything related to food and drink) from a professional standpoint for professionals and for serious food enthusiasts.

We will be posting frequently and we look forward to hearing from all of those who share these interests and look to become better at their craft.
