Meet the Pastry Chefs - Craig Poirier

RESIDES: Las Vegas, NV
PROFESSION: Pastry Chef, First Food & Bar
CULINARY EDUCATION: Notter School of Pastry Arts
FAVORITE SIMPLE FALL DESSERT RECIPE: Warm cinnamon roll with hazelnut ice cream, spiced caramel and toasted hazelnuts.

Craig works as a pastry chef at First Food & Bar in Las Vegas. He attended the University of Nevada before realizing he found more enjoyment and a new creative outlet in making cakes for family and friends. At the age of 23, he decided to move to Orlando to attend The Notter School of Pastry Arts where he found that cake decorating was only one of numerous ways to express himself. He now enjoys making desserts with a rustic home-style, American flare. Craig’s kitchen is never scarce of chocolate, Oreos, vanilla beans, cream cheese, and bacon. His favorite dessert is his very own hot chocolate crème brûlée with toasted marshmallow.
