Current Chapter Vice President
Author of Modern French Pastry
Cheryl (a.k.a. Pix), is known for combining bold, flavors and textures into small, adorable packages - be it a dessert, macaron or pintxo. Cheryl trained at the prestigious pâtisserie of MOF Philippe URRACA. Taking her French training first to our local farmer’s market, Cheryl established what is now a 18 year old Portland institution.
Her other love? Champagne. Over 600 cuvées with a focus on small grower producers are available. The goal is to make quality wine accessible and affordable and, most importantly, provide a fun atmosphere to drink it in. The list was awarded World's Best Champagne and Sparkling Wine List in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 by London's World of Fine Wine Magazine. With over 160 types of sherry, the list was also voted one of Wine Enthusiast’s Best Sherry Bars in the Nation in 2015.
Her book, Modern French Pastry, will guide you through the simplest petits fours to entremets and parlor tricks like tempering chocolate in the microwave.
