Stella Parks

CIA-trained pastry nerd, prodigal food writer, and resident pastry wizard. Once upon a time, Stella cashed out her life savings to attend language school in Tokyo so she could read the secret menu at her favorite sushi joint. Later, Food & Wine cited that compulsive dedication in naming her one of America’s Best New Pastry Chefs. When not in the kitchen, Stella spends most of her time polishing Star Trek quotes and playing video games. Her first cookbook is "BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts."
