Student Spotlight: Cake Monkey Bakery

When I first heard of Clemence Gossett, she was introduced to me as the fairy godmother/guardian angel of pastry chefs. About one year ago, my business partner and I decided we wanted our laminated dough products at Cake Monkey Bakery to compete with those from other top bakeries in the city. We hired Clemence to help us navigate the transition to a new recipe for croissant dough and to help us train our staff to achieve great results even at high volumes for wholesale production. In one 8 hour day, she tailored a new recipe to our needs and oversaw our normal production so as to help us refine our process. Our staff loved her. We love her! She is astute, well versed and super generous with her knowledge: an amazing teacher at her core. And with her guidance, we have completely transformed our product. We now sell at our store and to our wholesale accounts, the gorgeous, crisp, burnished, golden, flaky croissant of our dreams.”
