Over the next few years, she established herself as an executive pastry chef at The General’s Daughter in Sonoma and at Cafe Rouge in Berkeley and P/30 in Sebastopol. With a leap of faith (and a ton of love and support) she opened Backyard, in 2012, with her co owner and husband, Chef Daniel Kedan. Together they strive to bring the bounties of their surroundings to every dish.
