Gregory Ridgway's Profile
I started the A.O.S. degree program at Le Cordon Bleu in Portland, Oregon in the summer of 2010, majoring in Patisserie & Baking. I graduate this month, and with the help of my (now grown) kids, I'm updating cookie recipes I made for them when they were all young and launching my company, the Double C ("chocolate chip") Bakery.
I've always loved how chocolate chip cookies make people who receive them feel. While I was living in Germany back in the early 80's, my plates of cookies were my landlords first experiences with chocolate chips; they were delighted when I explained cookies weren't just for "nachtisch" (dessert), but we Americans eat them whenever! And making the different and experimental recipes I tried on my kids when they were small made them feel special.
