Chef Colette Christian:
A native of Chicago, Colette Christian, CMB, began working in restaurants at fourteen years old. A bread baking class in high school inspired a lifelong love of baking. Chef Christian earned her degree at the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier Vermont and a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. For many years, Christian worked in upscale restaurants and luxury hotels, running a bed and breakfast for two years in Ashfield, MA. She also ran a successful wedding cake business.

Currently, Chef Christian is working as a chef instructor for Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts, teaching baking and pastry.

In 2017, Chef Christian earned her Certified Master Baker (CMB) credential through the Retail Bakers of America.

About the Washington Red Raspberry Commission:

In the cool, marine climate of the Pacific Northwest, Washington produces approximately 90% of the nation’s frozen red raspberry crop. By freezing raspberries within hours of being picked at the peak of ripeness, Washington raspberry producers preserve the fruit’s integrity, flavor, and nutrition value, for convenience and ease of use year-round.
From artisan bread and laminated dough to quick breads and bars, Washington red raspberries can add natural vibrant colors and intense flavors to enhance any bakers or pastry chefs’ creativity.
