Hi I am Angela!

I was a pastry chef in Los Angeles for 15 years. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with some of the best chefs in town. We moved to Sonoma County in 2010. My husband and I wanted to raise our children closer to nature. We created our family home in the Valley of the Moon.

I find myself drawn towards discovering the local farms and meeting the farmers who dedicate themselves to the land. I feel very lucky to live here in Sonoma County. I appreciate and am so grateful for the beautiful agricultural area in which I live. I realize that we all live in very different places. You do not have to visit these specific farms to recreate any of these desserts for your friends, families and loved ones. Anywhere that is convenient and comfortable for you to shop that is where you should go;  be that your local farm stand, a local market that carries fresh produce, or a farmer’s market in your town. Coming together, being a part of the community, and sharing food that you have loving made is what is important.

I would also like to extend an invitation to all of my readers. Please share your favorite farm and farmer with me.  I am on a journey to visit at least one farm a week for a year. I would greatly appreciate and look forward to any and all suggestions. At this time I am limiting my postings to farms in Sonoma County but in the future I would like to extend to neighboring counties. And…if you are a farmer or farm owner and you would like me to visit your farm, please drop me an email at sonomacountyfarmdesserts@gmail.com.

Please enjoy this collection of dessert and pastry recipes featuring the bounty that Sonoma County farms hold. I hope you enjoy reading about our discoveries and recipe creations as much as we enjoy making these memories.

Peace and Love…

  1. Hi Angela! Thanks for visiting my blog, Sugartalk. I love love love your blog. And, so wild, I JUST returned last week from a trip to Napa Valley and Sonoma! It’s so beautiful there and the access to all the farms and produce makes me envious. We made a point to visit the weekly Sonoma Farmers Market which was awesome. Anyway, so happy you visited my blog because now I know about yours and will be following you.

  2. Hi Angela, Thanks for finding my blogs. So glad you are out there advocating for farmers and desserts! I’ll watch for you at the farmers’ markets or at our Paul’s Produce farm stand.
