I’m a professional pastry chef with 25 years experience in the industry. I’ve been teaching hands on classes for 15 years. I’m launching an in home cooking class business in Pittsburgh. The Strip District is my favorite place to shop for local ingredients from vendors that have been there for years. There are many places to discover in Pittsburgh for food and drink. Walking the Strip is a great place to start!
