Caroline Schiff

Caroline Schiff turned her passion for baking into a successful pastry career, and while that may sound straightforward, Caroline's story is far from conventional. With no formal training, Caroline worked her way up in the Brooklyn food scene, doing menial tasks for free in her early days and being paid in priceless experience. Now an executive pastry chef and food entrepreneur, Caroline challenges the popular notion of the female chef as a tough-as-nails type, holding tight to her femininity and setting her own standard of what it takes for a woman to hold her own in professional kitchens. In this episode, we explore the ups and downs of this type of career path, the importance of women supporting other women, and how Caroline has taken life's lemons and turned them into lemon meringue pies.
