Hello!  My name is Sally Cook.  I have been working in the food industry for around 30 years.  Most of my positions have been in the pastry department, first as an assistant, then as a pastry chef.  Some of the places I have worked as an assistant were: DC3, The Border Grill 2 (Santa Monica) and Spago.  As a pastry chef, I spent time in the pastry kitchens at The Parkway Grill, Julienne, Shiro, Mako, Valentino, and the Border Grill Group (Cuidad, Border Grill Santa Monica, Pasadena, Las Vegas).  I studied artisan bread making with Kathleen Weber at Della Fattoria in Petaluma.  Since 2005, I have owned/operated Heirloom Bakery and Café in South Pasadena. At Heirloom, we have wonderful neighborhood support.  Some of the items that we are known for are; Hostess-style cupcakes, lime pie, croissants, rustic bread and chicken pot pies.    I live in Arcadia with my husband, Tristan, and our mini Aussie mix, Sookie.  I enjoy walking our dog and spending time at home.  I also enjoy swimming competitively with the Rose Bowl Masters Swim Team.
