I encourage the staff to bring their children to work with them when they have holiday vacation days. Luana is Marcelo Gonzalez's daughter (Marcelo is our Pastry Chef). Luana cooks a lot with her parents at home and she is very comfortable in the kitchen. We love when she comes to the bakery and as you can see, she loves being there as well.
Whenever I am testing recipes, the baking staff always gets to try them out and offer their suggestions. Of course, I have to triple the recipe so there is enough for every one (12 servings). This recipe (Potato Waffles) is listed on my home page. Bon Appetit! (November 2010)
