I am proudly born and raised in the city of Cebu, Philippines. I did not grow up being in the kitchen surrounded by family so I had to figure everything the hard way from the start. It wasn't after graduating college that I finally discovered this passion in baking. I took a leap of faith, left my home and comfort zone, and signed up for a pastry program in San Francisco. Fast forward to more than a decade later, I find myself celebrating the 10th year of my own café in my beloved city and teaching for 6 years. I am very passionate about sharing my professional and personal journey with my guests and making them confident that anyone can bake and have fun in the kitchen.

It was a really great experience. I’ve a very good time. Eloise is an amazing teacher, very knowledgeable, inspiring and kind. She’s not only taught us how to make a macaron step by step and gave us a lot of tips, but also taught us how to manage time in the kitchen wisely as well. And the end result was so delicious!!! Would definitely recommend it.

This was a wonderful experience, I highly recommend it. Eloise did a fantastic job organizing everything for a smooth, easy process. Her recipe tastes amazing and I left feeling confident enough to try it on my own :)

It’s was so fun! My and friend had a great time and learnt a lot! Eloise was a great Chef teaching us step by step patiently on how to make macaron. Although we may not make it at home but definitely unique experience.

This experience was AMAZING! I highly recommend it whether you just want to learn about macarons or want to expand your current skill set. Chef Eloise was timely, efficient, and knowledgeable and made the afternoon a memorable experience. She’s teaches you all about the macaron making process, answers your questions, and engages you like you’re part of a team. And the end product (we did raspberry macarons with a buttercream/raspberry jam filling) were incrediblely DELICIOUS! Chef Eloise was kind and thoughtful making the Magic of Macarons that much more magical! <3

I signed up for Eloise's class while back and was finally able to go to her experience after things calmed down in the bay area. She informed us about restrictions due to the pandemic a day before, but because our group was small and we were all vaccinated, she slightly loosened them on the day of. Aa someone who never had actually made macarons, Eloise's class allowed me to watch the whole process first-hand, ask questions, and participate throughout the experience. At the end I had a box of finished macarons that I enjoyed over the weekend. Her personal story of running a business/cafe in SF was super interesting, and she also sent me more recipes afterwards. Great way to spend afternoon with friends and family!
