Why Pink Slip Gourmet?
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). After a couple months of 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 by starting my own personal chef business and aptly naming it Pink Slip Gourmet. It took being handed a literal "pink slip" to find my dream career, and I'm so lucky I did.
After a year in Paris at culinary school and working in a restaurant there, my husband and I brought 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 to provide Dallas with delicious baked goods, fun cooking classes and gourmet dinner parties. Bon appetit!
