With close to 20 years of culinary experience, Chef Fernandez has worked at varied Atlanta restaurants, hotels, and bakeries. She graduated with an Associates of Occupational Sciences in Culinary Arts from the Art Institute of Atlanta in the mid-90s and actually began on the “hot-side”. She found that the pastry department afforded her a better opportunity to show her more artistic and technical sides. Chef Fernandez has received medals for plated desserts at the Southern Pastry Classic and at local ACF competitions. She is a Certified Baker through the Retail Bakers of America and Certified Culinary Educator through the ACF. She currently teaches at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Atlanta, Georgia in the pastry department. Chef Fernandez loves teaching all aspects of the bakeshop but focuses mainly on showpieces and wedding cake design.
