Unleash Your Flavor Vision: Craft your Desired Taste Profile

My expertise as a pastry chef and culinary consultant, combined with my proprietary flavor wheels, helps me bring precision to the flavor profile of each product I create.

Our flavor wheels provide a visual representation of the different flavor profiles and allow us to precisely identify the flavor profile of each experiment. This tool not only helps us achieve the desired flavor profile, but it also helps our clients verbalize and communicate their flavor vision. By breaking the mold and playing with new ingredients, we find ways to make traditional recipes more nutritionally rich, more sustainable, and still enjoyable to eat. Our focus on culinary expertise, passion for innovation, and precise flavor profile determination helps us deliver products that are not only delicious, but also meet the evolving needs of your customers.

Create a Picture Perfect Presentation Using Innovative Ingredients

You are working hard to make your recipes more nutritious and sustainable, but altering recipes is never as simple as replacing an ingredient.

Your baked goods and confections are more than just food, they’re a representation of your brand and a window into your culinary creativity. That’s why presentation is just as important as nutrition and label. I understand this and I am dedicated to bringing your sensory goals to life. From the color, texture, height, and shape, every detail is considered to create a memorable presentation that perfectly captures your vision and leaves a lasting impression on your customers.

Whether you’re looking to entice customers with indulgent, trendy treats or evoke nostalgia with classic, timeless creations, I make sure your baked goods and confections are not only more nutritionally sound and tasty, but look amazing. I experiment with recipes to make new ingredients “fit in” without altering the quality of the presentation, so you can be confident that your customers will experience both the nutrition and appearance that you envision.
