Audrey Valerio - Pastry Chef, Wife, Mom
Hello! My name is Audrey Valerio. I've always had passion for sweets and I turned that passion into a career. I graduated with honors from the Art Institute of Washington in Arlington, VA. After graduating in 2007, I have been working around the DC metropolitan area - neighborhood restaurants, boutique hotels, luxury hotels, and catering.
Becoming a mom in 2019 made me realize that I'd like to work on something with my family. My husband, Nuvee, who is also a chef, works as my part time Sous Chef and cake artist. We are hoping that one day our little ones will help out in the kitchen (but hopefully not eat all the cookie dough!). We started a small cake studio in our home in Fort Washington, MD and we are hoping to have a larger kitchen in the next few years!
