Patisserie school

Chef Claudia started making pound cake and cookies at the early age of 9 and sold them in the neighborhood. Her main teacher was her uncle (a pastry chef himself) whom she would call whenever she needed advice. Claudia got a lot of inspiration spending time watching how he baked.
Her passion was put on hold when she graduated from high school with a degree in accounting. She started working as a public accountant at 17 and worked until 2004 when she began a home based bakery business with her brother.
The business was booming and began delivering bread to other bakeries and restaurants in the city. During the years of her tenure, she learned from the best to make many Chilean typical pastries and master them.
In 2006, Claudia had left her home based bakery and to pursue the dream of coming to the United States. She held many jobs to keep herself busy but her passion was never lost. She continued taking baking classes and baking for family and friends. She took a major step in 2012, when she joined L’Academie de Cuisine where she graduated with distinction as a professional Pastry Chef.
After graduating in May of 2013, she immediately worked toward opening her own French Bakery, and it only took her 6 months to stand it up in Silver Spring, Maryland.
