Food has always been her favorite hobby. She earned her Bachelor's Degree in Child and Family Studies with Minors in Dietetics and Sociology from LSU; after a couple of years of sitting at a desk working in the mental health field, she decided to make her hobby her career. After surviving her first King Cake season at Domenica, she was #teampastry for life. She took over the pastry departments at Johnny Sanchez and Borgne then became the Pastry Sous Chef at Willa Jean. At Willa Jean she met her future business partner Camille. They bonded over their similar backgrounds, love of neighborhood dive bars, and hatred for Brunch service. In 2017, Colleen got married and ran away to Europe (for six weeks.) Once back in the U.S., Colleen was lucky enough to begin working for Levee Baking Company. This experience, coupled with her time eating (everything) in Europe, grew her as a cook and made her a more thoughtful eater. In 2018, she became the Culinary Director at then Simone's Market (later renamed Made Grocery). Colleen brought Camille on as Production Manager. They ran the kitchen alongside a tremendously talented team until the store closed. Colleen and Camille decided to make something of their own. Together they began Luncheon . They no longer hate Brunch service. Posted in Demo Kitchen , Southern Food Tagged New Orleans , Louisiana , Cooking Demonstration , Cooking Class , Baking , pie , holiday 0 Likes Share
