I’m still working….on baking

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks.

After spending a few months in the kitchen improving my skills as a baker, I have once again returned to human resources.   Fear not fellow bakers, I have not turned my back on my passion for pastry.  I accepted a position as the Human Resources Manager for StarChefs.com, an online magazine for culinary insiders – and am reporting to Antoinette Bruno, the CEO and editor-in-chief and to Will Blunt, the Managing Editor.

Antoinette Bruno

StarChefs.com, the ‘word on food,’ has published more than 30,000 pages of original content and gets more than 30 million hits a month (just a feeeeew more than my blog) .  Our chef advisory board includes top chefs, including Bobby Flay & Marcus Samuelsson! (and darn right….I’m gonna work on those connections☺).  Our biggest event is the International Chefs Congress, a three day culinary event, with 3,000 attendees (of which 50% are chefs).  For three days, top chefs, pastry chefs, mixologists and sommeliers from around the world share their techniques and culinary knowledge and compete against their colleagues in challenges, including a food truck derby, a sommelier smackdown and an international pastry competition.

Whew! ….I can’t wait for ICC 2012!

And…. if being surrounded by very talented and creative colleagues wasn’t enough, I even get to work in an office that has a liquor cabinet, keeps beer in the fridge and encourages employees to play with the office mascot, Bruno (a french bulldog – no relation to Antoinette).

The past two weeks I have been concentrating on my new position.  This past Saturday, however, I was concentrating only on baking!  I’d like to thank everyone that joined us for the first Baked and Brewed party (I’ll share details in my next post).  We had a great time!

  1. Yay! So glad the new gig is working out – I’m so jealous that you work in an office with liquor AND dogs! LOL
