Meet Amanda Moreno, Pastry Chef!

...atop a grand finale at the James Beard House Dinner.

Amanda, we love you! And it’s so easy to fall in love when pastries, and desserts in general, are involved. Amanda is our fabulous executive pastry chef at Michael’s New York. She turns out the most innovative and flat-out delicious desserts you can imagine. Her journey to our kitchen began with a career change, following her heart away from a successful run in fashion towards the world of pastry. Inspired by a trip to Rome, she pursued pastry by attending the French Culinary Institute, graduating at the top of her class. Amanda joined the Michael’s team in 2007 and has been creating beautiful desserts for us ever since. She creatively combines classic techniques, seasonal ingredients, and global flavors to give her desserts their distinctive personality.
