In this episode, we connect with Pastry Chef Scott Green. Originally a fine art student in Chicago, until a chance night found him watching a documentary of a pastry competition that inspired him to pursue the craft of cooking. As a pastry professional of 15+ years, Green created Devil’s Food Kitchen to document his life as a chef in digital form – the embodiment of how he works, plays, thinks and creates.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Changing gears from fine art to pastry
  • From small pastry shops to running the pastry department at a 400-room resort
  • Teaching at the French Pastry School in Chicago
  • Being a member of Team USA & winning Bronze at the Coupe du Monde de la Patisserie in 2015
