Hello from Connecticut!

I'm so happy I found this incredible forum!

I worked as a professional cook in restaurants for 7 years making it all the way up to Sous Chef and then made the switch to pastry arts (mainly because often, the other chefs I worked with understandably wanted nothing to do with baking). After specializing in chocolate sculpture and wedding cakes for 3 years, I "retired" from the business to start a family and now teach both savory cooking and pastry classes.

I also feed my creative side by painting in oils and sculpting in glass.

I am looking forward to meeting you all and becoming an active member here!

Deborah

OK - so, us CT ladies should get together one of these days. In just a couple weeks I won't be working outside of the home so my time will be my own. :-)

Corinne,

Good idea. And congrats on not having to work outside home! I teach two nights a week and the rest of my time is spent with my 3-year old at home, my schedule is quite open too.

Yes, me too. My hubby and I want to win the lotto, get about ten acres of land and build. :-) I was thinking four bedrooms and a very large kitchen!!! :-)

Glad to have you! I love baking and pastry too and I hope to turn it into a career once my kids are a little older. My sister is getting married next year and I'll be making her cake. It'll be hectic and fun! Welcome!
