My Story

Love for desserts

Hello, I’m Saura!

I started this blog to share some of my favorite creations that I’ve come up with over the years.  I’d love to help people become more confident in their kitchen abilities and have fun! I’ve been cooking professionally for about eight years now, each year learning and growing more than the last. I enjoy making sweet creations that push the limits of what a dessert can be; by taking an ordinary dish and putting a twist on it. My favorites are matching flavors that you wouldn’t expect to find together.

I’m from Los Angeles, California currently living in Denver, Colorado with my husband, my son, and bull terrier.  I work in Denver as the Pastry Chef for Halcyon Hotel.  We prepare everything from breads, to desserts, and everything in between.  It can be a lot of work sometimes, but it’s my passion and I can’t imagine doing anything else with my life.

In 2018, I placed 1st in La Coupe d’Altamira! A local chocolate competition here in Denver, Co.

I’ve written 4 cookbooks that are available on my website or Amazon. You can click the Cookbook tab up top to check them out!
