About Talula 

Welcome to my Culinary Journey!

My passion for the art of pastry began when I embarked on a remarkable journey to Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in Paris and London. This experience has not only refined my skills but also ignited a deep love for the world of Patisserie.

At Le Cordon Bleu, I dedicated myself to mastering the basic and intermediate techniques associated with Patisserie, honing my abilities to create delectable delights that stay true to their origin and are consistent. Examples of some pastries created are macaroons, entrements, mille-feuilles, and frasiers, which can further be seen in the Gallery page of the website. 

In between my studies, I had the incredible opportunity to work as a pastry cook at Gucci Osteria in Beverly Hills, an establishment adorned with the prestigious Michelin star. This experience challenged and inspired me, pushing me to new heights in the world of pastry. It was here that I had the privilege of working with some of the finest chefs and ingredients all while crafting exquisite desserts that left a lasting impression on discerning palates.

My journey doesn't end there. I am committed to continuously refining my skills and expanding my culinary knowledge. I am currently studying plant-based patisserie in order to better understand this up and coming diet and implement it in my own creations. I am a firm believer that the world of pastry is an ever-evolving art, and I am dedicated to staying at the forefront of it.

This website serves as both a portfolio of my work and a platform to share my insights and experiences. Whether you're a fellow pastry enthusiast, a curious foodie, or someone seeking restaurant recommendations, you'll find a wealth of information here. I've been fortunate to explore various cities, savoring their culinary offerings, and now I'm excited to share my top restaurant picks with you. I've often been asked by friends for dining suggestions in the cities I've visited, and I've gathered them all here in one convenient place. Additionally, I have devised a ranking system known as the Tee-Scale, designed to help identify my top-rated restaurants. Scores closer to 10 signifies superior quality and excellence in both food and atmosphere.

Thank you for joining me on this journey through the world of Patisserie and gastronomy. I hope you find inspiration and delight in my creations and recommendations. Feel free to reach out and connect with me—I'm always eager to exchange ideas and share our mutual love for the culinary arts. Find me on instagram and tiktok @talulaskitchen @taluladempsey
