Stella Parks

Award-winning pastry chef Stella Parks plays with chocolate every day and, if Food & Wine magazine is to be believed, she’s very good at it. Food & Wine named her one of the best new pastry chefs of 2012, and her work with the Serious Eats food blog, where she is a senior editor, has earned her a James Beard Award nomination. Parks graduated from the Culinary Institute of America and worked in kitchens and bakeries before moving to Japan to learn Japanese. When she came back to the United States, she dove back into baking and in 2010 started her own blog, called BraveTart. BraveTart was first a partnership with photographer Stephen “Rosco” Weber, and later with Sarah Jane Sanders. Seven years and many cookies later, Parks is publishing her first cookbook, BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts. The Washington Post called it “One of the most engaging baking books to be published in years.”
