Greetings, I’m Devon the gal behind Built Pastry. I am a professionally trained pastry chef, food photographer, and food blogger based in Ohio. When not baking, taking pictures, or creating recipes you can find me enjoying a run or lifting weights at the gym. Although, I love savory foods – my heart belongs to baking and thankfully for me, my family is more than willing to help me out and be my taste testers.
I graduated from Johnson & Wales in 2005 and spent many years in hotel kitchens and bakeries cultivating my skills. It is my love of teaching and recipe development which brought me to creating this space. Think of me as your baking coach. Here you will find approachable bakes filled with tips and tricks from my experience in professional kitchens. I want to help build your kitchen confidence and bake amazing pastries.
