Pastry Chef Susan Kolman loves every moment spent in a kitchen. After successfully climbing the corporate ladder in an international consulting firm, Susan traded in her business suits and briefcase for chef coats, pastry bags and more fun than she ever believed possible. Her love of baking led her to the Pastry Arts program at L'Academie de Cuisine in Gaithersburg, Maryland where she graduated with honors. Following completion of her formal pastry training, Susan became the Pastry Chef for several well-respected restaurants in Washington, DC and subsequently had the honor of becoming Assistant Corporate Pastry Chef for Albert Uster Imports. Her work won rave reviews in the Washington Post and Washingtonian Magazine, although for Susan, the best reviews come from happy guests and the sight of scraped-clean plates returning to the kitchen. She enjoys sharing her passion through teaching, including The Notter School for Pastry Arts in Orlando, FL. She has trained under and worked closely with a number of the top pastry chefs in the world including Anil Rohira, Ewald Notter and En Ming Hsu. Susan moved from Washington, DC to Scottsdale, AZ in July, 2008.Chef Kolman is the instructor for the Pastry Series, Advanced Pastry Series, Saturday baking and pastry classes, and Sunday brunch classes.
