Custom Hello Kitty apron by Dana Digrispino

My name is Camelia and I'm a Filipina-American pastry chef based in Chicago. I grew up watching my grandmothers, mom, and aunties (all self-taught bakers) bake delicious cakes and pastries from scratch.  I feel very fortunate to be able to make a career out of my passion for baking and aim to show off popular Filipino flavors (like ube, mango, and pandan).

I am a graduate of the L'Art de la Pâtisserie program (2018) at  The French Pastry School in Chicago.
