Hi! Thanks for stopping by Livin’ in the Kitchen! I’m Jess, I’m 16 years old, and food-obsessed.
When I say food obsessed I mean it. I love everything about food from the process of making it to the ritual of eating it.
Love for food has brought me so much luck. It’s the only way I can explain how I intern for pastry chef Gale Gand, or how stashing at Spiaggia in Chicago has turned into a paid job where I work with pastry chef Cece Campise. I’ve found the more I learn about pastry, the more I want to know about it. (Below: Cece, Me, Gale) -My mentors-
And the more I work with the people in the kitchen, the more I love them.
Whether it’s professional food in a restaurant kitchen or rainbow polka dot pancakes at home….
Do what you love. No matter what it is. Just make sure it’s with people you really care about.
Because you want it to be worth remembering who you torched crème brûlée with,
Even if (eh-hem!) Tif only came to lick the spoon…
