If you’ve stopped believing in fairies, chances are, you’re not yet familiar with the enchanted creations of caterer and baker extraordinaire, Loria Stern. Her pressed flower cookies, for example, seem so steeped in magic, it’s hard to believe a mortal baked them in a kitchen as opposed to being plucked from some sort of enchanted forest hideaway. More simply put, they are the stuff of dreams. As is Loria!
We are endlessly inspired by her creativity and her love for local community; her commitment to the environment and sustainable practices. More than a maker, she is a muse, imbuing everything she touches with thoughtfulness and rigor. But don’t just take our word for it ... take hers.
