Hands on Classes at the World's First Healthy Baking Lab 

Located in Austin, Texas, I opened the world's first Healthy Baking Lab in 2022 to further pursue my vision of creating a sweet and healthy baking world.  At the Lab my team and I develop all of our incredible healthy baking recipes and provide hands on classes to professional chefs and home bakers.  The Lab is also a phenomenal location to hold team building events, pop-ups, and new product introductions.  If you are interested in any of these types of events please Contact Us.

I am thrilled to meet you!

Teaching is my passion and, as a classically trained pastry chef, I have had the fortune to teach baking classes to thousands of bakers all over the world during the past 25 years.

I consider myself a lifelong student and I believe that being a student makes me a better teacher. My classes are a sensory experience, and I strive to give you only the very best in ingredients, Master recipes (that I have tested over many years), I work with the best equipment, share the best techniques, my most treasured tips. I want my classes to be a life experience and seeing my students makes me so happy. My classes have helped so many bakers start their own businesses.

Upcoming In-Person Classes

“I have worked with Chef Vanessa many times and they have all been phenomenal experiences. I hired her to teach a healthy baking class in my home once and it was one of the best classes I have taken! She is extremely well prepared and her execution exceeded our expectations. Her theory and recipes are perfectly aligned with the best presentation. I highly recommend her as an instructor and consultant, it is a pleasure to work with her.”
