....Pastry Chef Eileen Randall Cook was raised in Santa Barbara and realized at an early age that if someone would pay you money to make cookies when you grew up, that was the thing to do.
Eileen left Santa Barbara for the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco and a pastry internship at Campton Place Hotel. She graduated from the CCA Chef Program in 1989. She then moved to Los Angeles where she mastered breakfast pastry at the Hotel Bel Air, did food styling for print and film, catering for the stars, taught cooking classes and managed the cooking school at Montana Mercantile in Santa Monica.
Since returning to Santa Barbara in 1992 Eileen was the pastry chef at Brigitte’s (now Opal) and Executive Pastry Chef at the Wine Cask. There she was responsible for the design and production of desserts for the Wine Cask Restaurant and catering company, The University Club and Polo Club. - Bella Dolce's website
