    This is the Culinary-Kitten saying "hey" all the way from South Africa. I've been in the industry for  years. I went to a culinary institute and trained in advanced patisserie, although I can cook a very mean steak, I still prefer my pastries and wedding cakes. I prefer working in bakeries than in the pastry section of a restaurant kitchen. I love bread. I love it enough to only eat freshly baked bread from the ovens for breakfast everyday. I have also worked as an artisan baker using a stone wood fired oven.
