Leslie Peng is a Northern California native who grew up in Davis against the beautiful backdrop of farmlands. She moved to the Bay Area to attend university and fell in love with the wide diversity of new cuisines she tasted in Berkeley. She began working as a prep cook, determined to become a part of the fascinating world of restaurants, and gradually progressed through the ranks in the kitchen. Eventually she found she could dovetail her passion for sweets and background in science in the field of pastry. She attended Western Culinary Academy in Portland, Oregon to study pastry, and after her graduation she returned to the Bay Area to work at The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco, where she deepened her love and technique for French pastry. Under the tutelage of Christopher Lee and Samin Nosrat in Berkeley, she adopted the mantras that still shape her cooking today—the elevation of beautiful locally sourced, sustainable produce, and honoring the ancient tradition of cooking with love, care, and respect.
