Gale GandGrowing up with artists as parents, it was easy for Gale Gand to find herself studying metalsmithing in college. However, she found her true calling while waitressing at a local restaurant. From there her entrepreneurial spirit and artistic nature lead her to become a nationally acclaimed pastry chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, television personality, and James Beard Award winner. Gand is the founding pastry chef and partner of the Chicago restaurant Tru and has written eight cookbooks. She is currently working on her ninth cookbook, managing her root beer company—Gale’s Root Beer, and teaching a series of baking and cooking classes in the Elawa Farm kitchen in Lake Forest, Ill.
