During her time in NYC, she worked her way up the ranks of some of the city’s finest restaurants, including Le Cirque, Bouley, Country, The Russian Tea Room, and Olana, before ending up as Head Pastry Chef of the David Burke restaurant group. Her recipes have been featured in Food & Wine Magazine, The New York Chocolate Show, Brides Magazine, Martha Stewart’s Living Today on Sirius Radio, The Today Show, Food Network’s Chopped, The Daily News, and MTV.com to name a few.
