We are excited to announce that Dani Borow has joined the Frescos team as our new Executive Pastry Chef. Chef Dani comes to Frescos with over 15 years of culinary experience, most recently as the Executive Pastry Chef at Posto 9, and prior to that as the owner of Buttercup Gourmet Bakery here in Lakeland.
She began her career at the Great Harvest Bread Company in Annapolis, Maryland, when she left her position as Executive Brand Manager at a large advertising agency to pursue her dream of becoming a Chef. In addition to having earned a degree in Pastry Arts from L'Academie de Cuisine, one of the top 10 culinary schools in North America, Chef Dani has trained and specialized with renowned Pastry Chefs, including World Pastry Champions and Executive Pastry Chefs to the White House. Prior to starting her own business, she worked across the United States at several Marriott International properties and was the Bakery & Pastry Lead Chef at their largest property, The World Center Marriott in Orlando.
We couldn't be more thrilled to have Dani as the Executive Pastry Chef at Frescos. Her recent dessert creation, a Mango Bavarois, Chili Lime Cremeux, Orange Chiffon, Guava Coulis Malagueta & Pineapple Compote, with a Strawberry Cuvee Sorbet, won "Best Dessert" for the Frescos team at the Top Chef of Polk County 2017 Competition in April. Her creative, well-crafted desserts and pastries will enhance and complement our cuisine, taking the Frescos dining experience to the next level.
Please join us in welcoming Chef Dani to the Frescos family, and be sure to stop by soon to check out her delectable offerings in our pastry case, and her decadent new desserts on our dinner menu!
