She studied film in Syracuse, New York, worked at Fox in L.A. for a stint before her friends convinced her to open a dessert company. Besides teaching, she also develops recipes and serves as a food consultant.

It was not something that worked for me. I thought that the class had something to do with pastries etc but it ended up making Twinkie’s and Oreo cookies.

The class was great! Chef Rose had lots of experience to share for technique and tips that I was hoping to glean from this class. She is also super fun and spunky which made the class really enjoyable!
