Jennifer Altman, pastry chef
I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Jennifer Altman when I started out in my culinary career in San Francisco. Jennifer, originally from Glasgow, is the pastry chef at Bay Wolf restaurant – one of the top restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is a highly experienced professional pastry chef and class instructor, having trained at San Francisco’s famed California Culinary Academy, taught professional level courses at Tante Marie’s Cooking School, and often attracted high prize for her delicious desserts in restaurant reviews.
Jennifer entered her first and last baking competition as a child – her towering multi-layered meringue cake was deemed too good for an eight-year-old to make and was disqualified! Her cakes, cookies, confections and desserts continue to astound and delight diners and students. As Jennifer is also a food scientist by training her classes are the perfect opportunity to learn about the fascinating chemistry of baking, pastry and confectionery.
In January 2011 Jennifer is flying over to London to run a series of very special masterclasses with me:

Chocolate Masterclass, Tuesday 25th January, 6pm-9.30pm
