Dawn Landes is a trained professional whose culinary education has been in the making all her life. She learned at an early age from both her grandmother and mother who were fabulous bakers. After attending college, she opened a pastry business, specializing in wedding and fantasy cake design.
After moving to St. Louis, she decided one could not live on cake alone, so she attended the Culinary Arts Program at Forest Park Community College to broaden her skills. Her cooking adventures have taken her to Theoule, France where she received a certificate of completion from the Rhodes School of Cooking for her studies in Mediterranean and traditional French cuisine.
She also has received the Culinary Business Academy’s Personal Chef Certification and is a member of the United States Personal Chef Association.
