Back In NOLA (New Orleans, LA)

Hello again! It has really been a while. I Have to say the last two years have been quite interesting. I was recently the pastry chef at St. Ives Country Club. It was fun, a lot of work, but learned A LOT! About a month and a half ago I decided I needed a huge life change. Well, as luck would have it. I ended back in New Orleans and back at Sucre. For those who Have not fallowed me for long or are just joining me. Sucre is a confectionary. (You can look them up at shopsucre.com) This is the place I started my pastry experience. I enjoyed it so much I wanted come back. And I couldn't be happier with my choice. So, over the past two years I graduated Gwinnett Tech with an Associates in Culinary Arts. Worked at St. Ives in the pantry/ dessert station in there dinning room. Then I went to being a pastry cook (the only one) for Chateau √Član. It was a good experience, but short lived. I went back to St. Ives to be the pastry chef. ( got offered a better deal and was closer to home). Around February of 2014 I decided to take on a pastry chef part time job working for Sweet Auburn BBQ. I can honestly say working two jobs in Atlanta that are far apart and about an hour away is a lot. I ended having to give up the part time job. I wanted to live. Then several months later realized I needed a life change. Texted a friend about any jobs she knew of and bam. I got a new job. :-) I am currently doing gelato. Yummy and cold. Getting back in the grove of it all again, but all will work out. I will post some pictures of some of the things I have done over the last two years for y'all soon. Thank you for fallowing and reading about the experience in the baking and pastry world.
