About the CEO & Author of The Diabetic Pastry Chef cookbook

Greetings! I'm Stacey Harris, also known as The Diabetic Pastry Chef.

Shortly after attending culinary school to become a pastry chef, I was diagnosed with diabetes. Mercy!

I was devastated, as I absolutely loved to bake and loved to eat sweets. I experimented with a lot of artificial sweeteners and was mainly disappointed with the results. I thought, there has to be a better way to bake great-tasting products from my kitchen that will be enjoyable for diabetics to eat. After many experiments, I developed a formula that consistently turned out delicious confections that even non-diabetics love!

GOAL
As a health-conscious pastry chef, my goal is NOT to have the lowest-carb products on the market—but to substantially LOWER the carbs without affecting quality or taste.

WHOLESOME, ALL-NATURAL INGREDIENTS
- The products sold in my shop use NO artificial sweeteners, preservatives or additives unless indicated. (An exception to this might be the decorations & garnishments on my baked goods.)
- All-natural, low-glycemic Whey Low® Type D Granular is the sweetener I primarily use in my baked goods.
- My baked goods & confections are handmade and of gourmet quality. My products are made with care from wholesome, natural ingredients of premium standard. I work from a licensed, inspected commercial kitchen.
