I’m Joy. I’m a self-taught baker, turned professional baker, turned food photographer, and three-time cookbook author.
I grew up in the kitchen in between my father, who makes a mean Sweet Potato Pie, and my mother, who makes a really weird purple hot dog casserole… don’t ask. Between my kitchen loving-parents, the clinking cake pans, and the flying flour, it became clear that baking is in my blood.
I moved from California to New Orleans, Louisiana in 2014 inspired by the people, the culture, and the beignets. That’s where I do a majority of my living, working, eating, cocktailing and related horsing around. If you find yourself in New Orleans, check out an event at my studio space The Bakehouse!
Contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I try very hard to respond to each email I receive. Please forgive me if, for some reason, I am unable to get back to you. I like you… I just need more hours in the day.
