Executive Pastry Chef
Growing up cooking alongside her grandma in rural Texas, Amanda's natural craftiness and prowess in the kitchen turned into a full-fledged business in high school. Despite this early success and subsequent roles in restaurants, Amanda didn't consider culinary school seriously until 2008 when she joined Four Seasons Hotel Austin as a hostess in the restaurant. Drawn inexorably to the pastry shop, she was taken under the wing of the executive pastry chef who motivated her to seek out professional training. Over the next five years, Amanda took on increasing levels of responsibility before her promotion to the top pastry position in late-2015.
