Join me all as we welcome Katy Hawkins to Patachou Inc.!
Katy hails from a farm family in central Indiana. After graduating from Purdue with a degree in Science of Hospitality Management , she attended and graduated from Culinary Institute of America with a degree in baking and pastry.
Katy started her professional career at famed Chez Panisse/Berkley, working under Alice Waters. For the next six years, she worked in the pastry departments at the Four Seasons Hotels in Jackson Hole and San Diego. Due to Covid,-19 Katy was determined to return home to be closer to family-and she now is part of the Patafam.
Katy is working with Jason and Victoria at the PPK with the goal of enhancing our in-house pastry and bread department (to make our products) tastier than ever, and research and development for Flour Market.
