ABOUT

Throughout her life, Sandra Bonhomme-Gilliam has been passionate about nutrition and how to stay healthy, which has provided a balanced way of living. Her extensive university journey led her to a Ph.D. in Nutrition, achieved in 2009 at the Paris-Descartes University in Paris, France.

Her passion for nutrition and desire to make healthy desserts led her to attending a pastry school in Paris to learn how to make traditional French products. After she became certified, Sandra created a series of gluten-free, dairy-free pastries that are made with whole ingredients: pastries that are not only delicious but also nutritious!

Sandra is also a gourmet (a connoisseur of good food) which most might think would be difficult to combine sweets with a healthy lifestyle. With her background in nutrition, she shifted her focus to becoming a French pastry chef (or pâtissière ), dedicated to making delicious and healthy cakes and pastries.
