About Us



It started as a few offhanded discussions about the white space in media for the American pastry scene, and quickly morphed into a unified vision for a passionate group of professionals. Throughout 2018 our team worked with passion and precision to build the foundation for what will soon become a full-scale multimedia platform. Now, as a member of the Rennew Media family of sites, along with Entrepreneurial Chef, this is version 1.0.



To build a one-of-a-kind multimedia platform that will inspire, educate and connect the gourmet community. An informational conduit spotlighting the trade and giving a voice to hardworking pastry and baking professionals.



What begins with a digital publication and website, will quickly evolve into a full-scale platform inclusive of a podcast, videos, industry awards, events and special print editions. We’re on an aggressive timeline to build a staple resource for pastry and baking professionals.
