Dori White Coy once thought becoming a pastry chef was an unattainable dream. After years of insistence from family and friends to make pastry a career, the dream was finally realized, when her husband enrolled her in culinary school as a birthday gift. After the first day of classes she knew she was meant to become a chef. She was fortunate to study under many talented chefs that inspired her to accomplish goals she never thought possible. While juggling a busy schedule of school, work and motherhood there were times when it was hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but the vision of seeing herself in a white coat and toque drove her to persevere. She is constantly studying; reading and practicing to ensure each of her endeavors are more successful than the last.

Dori lives in Mobile, AL with her husband, Rob and daughter, Sarah. She is the owner of Sweet Escape Confections where she creates custom (edible) works of art. “I always knew that pastry would be a lifelong hobby. I never dreamed something that brought me such happiness would also become a career“
