Chicago born and raised, Zasha Gazder still remembers the day at the age of 11 when she made a shipwreck cake for her father’s birthday. While she had previously dabbled in baking, the creativity she experienced with this cake – molding fondant, piping frosting, layering the cake with ganache – all made her fall in love with baking.
Zasha loves to travel and sample local cuisines. These flavors and experiences filter into her baking palette, enabling her to come up with some amazing ideas and tastes.
While still in high school, Zasha opened her own small business and enjoyed creating baked goods for many clients. Later, she attended The Culinary Institute of America in New York. While at the CIA she externed at Bittersweet Bakery where she worked on building and finishing cakes in Chicago under Mindy Gohr. After graduating with a bachelors in Business Management/Advanced Baking and Pastry, Zasha moved back to the Windy City. She currently works at the fine dining restaurant Yugen in Chicago under pastry chef Jeanine Lamadieu.
