Why Pink Slip Gourmet?
Welcome! Pink Slip Gourmet is headquartered in Dallas, TX and is owned and operated by Lee Wedeberg. Here is her story...
Pink Slip Gourmet started in 2008 when the financial crisis hit and the hedge fund I worked for was no longer in need of many of its employees (including me). While looking for a job, it dawned on me that I would rather wake up every morning and be elbow-deep in dough than spend my day in an office building. So, I took the plunge, started my own baking business and aptly named it Pink Slip Gourmet. It took being handed a literal "pink slip" to find my dream career, and I'm so lucky I did.
I spent year in Paris living my dream: attending culinary school, working at a restaurant, and eating my weight in croissants. Before returning to the states, my husband and I found out we would be bringing home a French souvenir that was the first of three children. My business took a hiatus while I got through the trenches of three young kids, and now I'm back providing delicious baked goods, fun cooking classes, easy recipes and gourmet dinner parties. Bon appetit!
