I’m Lisa Beretta, a sophomore studying Culinary Management at Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU). While I am still learning about the big wide world of the baking and pastry arts (and some culinary arts as well), this originally home-based adventure became an educational dream come true. In my last two years of high school, I attended a culinary and baking program at Manchester School of Technology and am so happy that I am able to further my passion through college.
Along with baking cakes and making candies, the scientific side of baking and culinary arts is also one of my interests (Harold McGee is one of my favorite authors). I enjoy cooking at home and being creative with any recipe that has been given to me, whether it’s tweaking a recipe for caramel candies and adding my own personal touch to it, or creating a whole new recipe from scratch.
While I love to bake and cook, a few other joys of mine include video games, playing Scrabble, and visiting Barnes and Noble. I love animals, especially cats. We have a Siberian cat named Vanya, and he is gorgeous!
Well, I hope that you will join me as I learn all the new things about what makes a true pastry chef and, more importantly, that you have fun with this experience.
Cook, bake, create, eat!
