I'm always nervous about being interviewed. There is always the concern of mis-speaking or being too strong, or too critical, or too something, and after reading this I was afraid it was one of those times, but the only thing I would change is that I would clarify the last sentence... Although I encourage my clients to be creative and to have fun with their flavors I will NEVER let them walk out the door with some combination that I think is gross... or worse, that I think their guests will think is gross. I do, firmly, stick by the fact that it doesn't matter what I like, that it is all about my clients, that being said, my limited dislikes in the pastry world are a shadow to my dislikes in the savory world! I love pushing the envelope and I adore my clients for being game and for being adventurous.

By the way... we've been working with Christine and Aldo since just after they hired their darling wedding planner... in addition to being the sweetest couple ever, they are a joy to work with and as we're rapidly nearing their wedding date I am getting increasingly excited!!!
