In 2008, Julia was honored with an invitation to join the very exclusive Les Dames d’Escoffier International (LDEI) as a founding member of the St. Louis, Missouri chapter. Considered the preeminent global professional association for women leaders in the food, beverage, and hospitality industries, LDEI is quite selective about those it asks to join its ranks. Members are drawn from the highest echelons of the food world, and are expected to inspire and advance other women in the food industry through demonstrated excellence in leadership and philanthropy.



After nearly six months in development, my new Kitchen Club Collection has arrived! Here’s an overview of some of the cookies you can make with my first kit in the collection, which released just in time for Halloween. Complete with stencils, cutters, and even an instructional video, each kit will provide all you need to make wonderfully rich and layered 2-D, and often 3-D, stenciled cookie designs. 

Stay tuned for more holiday releases in October and November! I hope you love my new club and kits as much as I loved designing them for you! – Julia
