Worcester County’s Creative Cuisine


Alina EisenhauerWhat is your cooking and baking education?
I’m actually self-taught.

Why did you become a baker?
This is what I love to do. I’m obsessed with food. I like all food and I cook as well. I would like to own a restaurant in the future, but right now I like the artistry of pastry.

What is your favorite dessert?
I really don’t have just one ~ I love it all!

What is your favorite TV food show?
I liked the Food Network’s Chopped, because I was on it, and I also like Bravo’s Top Chef.

Why did you choose to open your business in Worcester?
It has more people and more restaurants that I can sell to.

Any embarrassing kitchen incidents that you’d be willing to share with us?
Really, none that I can think of, since I don’t dwell on the negative.

What was the most outlandish/ extraordinary confection you’ve created?
I can think of two recent ones. I made a peanut butter ice cream with candied bacon and peanut bacon brittle and I also just did a 10 tier blue and brown wedding cake and I did an exact replica of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars on it.

Can you sum up your experience being on Chopped?
It was very different because it is not a measure of your worth as a chef, it is more of a game.
