More about Master Pastry Chef Yasmin Gutierrez

  • Proud Lettuce Entertain You partner, Yasmin Gutierrez, of: Beatrix, Beatrix Market, and Foodease, will be sharing her time and expertise with our teens to teach the magic behind the famous Magic Cookie!
  • Chef Yasmin was born in Mexico City and at an early age, she valued the importance of hard work. She spent hours in the kitchen with her grandmother and mother making traditional Mexican dishes and desserts like buñuelos and flan. These flavors sparked her passion for sweets.
  • She moved to the U.S. with her family to pursue an education. She loved math and thought she wanted to be an accountant but after working at her mom’s office, she quickly realized sitting in a cubicle was not for her. After graduating from the Illinois Institute of Art in Culinary and discovering the variety within pastry from chocolate to bread, ice sculptures to cake decorating, she was hooked!
  • Join us to learn how working as a pastry chef isn’t all cupcakes and cookies. It takes immense patience, attention to detail and even stellar math skills. So if you have a sweet tooth for working in the kitchen, this is the perfect opportunity to meet and learn more from Chef Yasmin Gutierrez!
