My name is Evelyn R. Cooke and I am a Pastry Artist and Chef based in NYC. Welcome to my online store! Any customer of mine is like family so here is a little bit about me FYI.
I am a born and raised proud NYer (Staten Island to be exact – Park Hill to be even more exact.) I am also a SUPER proud alumna of Howard University’s School of Business – the school that helped mold me into a strong Black woman of truth and service. Howard also was my ticket to enter corporate America where I held several roles throughout retail sales/customer development and was Senior Assistant Brand Manager for a multi-million dollar foods brand specializing in project management for our brand’s development, product innovation and packaging design.
After spending time exploring the culinary side of the food industry through an intense Professional Pastry Arts program at the esteemed International Culinary Center in New York (same school Bobby Flay attended and where Jacques Torres is my program dean!), I have now found myself creating sweet moments out of pastry magic for people all over the world!
When I am not in the kitchen, I am busy running my own scholarship program, offering marketing support for community-focused startups, and spending time with friends and family. To hear more about my scholarships and about me, visit my personal website EvelynCooke.com/About-Ev
