I mentioned in the “about me” section that my sister, Thais, is a pastry chef. Her career began at my mother’s restaurant, Sazon in Ridgewood, NJ. Being a family restaurant, Thais had various responsibilities but it quickly became clear where her true talent and passion lay, dessert-making. She became the official pastry chef for Sazon and worked there for almost two years. She later attended the famed French Culinary Institute in New York City. Having demonstrated great ability, her teacher was happy to give her an outstanding recommendation that landed her an internship at Jean-Georges, a top 10 NYC restaurant according to Zagat. Thais currently works at Salud Restaurant & Bar, also in NYC.

To add to her repertoire, Thais is often contracted to make her stunning and succulent desserts for special events such as birthdays and weddings. If you or someone you know is planning a special event in the NYC area, feel free to contact Thais via email at Having had the pleasure of trying her scrumptious creations, I have no doubt you too will be delighted.
