Here’s what Kristen told us about herself:
“I have been baking since I was tall enough to see over the kitchen counter. Food has always been a passion of mine- it’s a creative outlet for me. The connection between what’s on our plate, our health, and the world around us is undeniable; As a result, I went vegetarian in 2004, and then vegan in 2008. Veganism is my form of personal activism.
I am a graduate of ACC Culinary, where I studied Baking & Pastry Arts. I have over five years of professional food service experience in which I have worked towards promoting and advancing vegan cuisine. I was recently featured in the Austin Chronicle for my baking efforts, and won 1st Place in the Vegan Tasting Category in the Austin Cake Show 2011.
One of my favorite things to do in the kitchen is to re-create my favorite southern comfort dishes with plant-based ingredients. Originally from Louisiana, I was raised in Houston, and have lived in Austin for 4 years with my rescued kitty, Milo. Outside of the kitchen, I am one of the organizers for Texas VegFest, which is an annual event held in Austin that promotes and celebrates plant-based diets and cruelty-free lifestyles for a healthier, more sustainable future.
I am currently making plans to open my own vegan baking business in the spring of 2012. Wish me luck!”
