    What is the Story of Sweet Finale?
    by Chef Janice

    My passion for food began early growing up in a family where cooking and eating was, and still is, a
    very special time to bring everyone together.

    After earning a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management in St. Paul University, Quezon City. I went on to pursue my Associate in Applied Science degree at the prestigious School of Culinary Arts Kendall College in Chicago, IL(1999-2001).

    Since then, I worked in the fine AMBROSIA (Euro-American Patisserie) in Barrington, IL. In which Chef Richard Rivera became my mentor for two and a half years. My yearning for education did not stop in the gastronomic world. I finished-off a Masters Degree in Business Administration majoring in Entrepreneurship and Marketing at the Brennan School of Business-Dominican University in River Forest, IL.

    The Story of Risa Chocolates
    by Pam Lim Cinco

    It’s a journey of discovering one’s passion.

    As a child, I loved to eat, but the kitchen was not a place I ever wanted to go into because, for me, it was hot and disorganized in there. Cooking was a chore and a bore. I preferred to read books and eat while doing so.

    During my teens, I had my first taste of blueberry cheesecake which I could only buy in bakeshops. To satisfy my cheesecake craving, I had to wait when my parents had the time to bring me to a mall. We all know that cravings need to be immediately addressed or foodies like me get really cranky. : )

    I had to end my unfulfilled cravings and crankiness, so armed with an oven toaster, makeshift baking tools, and my Maya Kitchen cookbook, I tried my best to whip up my version of blueberry cheesecake the way I liked it (Note that there was no exact recipe for this.). After a few disasters, I was finally able to come up with a decent version. Skimming through the other pages of my one and only cookbook, I began to try out other recipes, but was limited to cookies because of the size of my oven toaster.
