After spending years in San Francisco baking, I was really missing brick houses and free museums. So I decided to return to my favorite city and bring some of that seasonal California cuisine flair to the culinary scene. Black Pearl Tarts launched in January of 2016 and has been providing the District with elegant desserts every since.

When my husband and I got engaged, we decided we needed a family crest. We thought an anchor and a mermaid best represented the two of us so we commissioned a crest from an artist. After that, we decided that we would always give our businesses nautical names. One day, Black Pearl just came to me and it made sense. Black Pearls are a rare and unique version of something classic – just like our tarts.

What is your favorite part about baking?

Flavor Match Making! I love to hear what a couple’s favorite flavors are…citrusy or chocolatey, adventurous or classic, boozey or fruity. Then we make custom flavors and designs for people that are their perfect flavors combined. Tarts are so versatile, they can be designed the same way you could do a wedding cake bringing out your unique style.

I just love weddings period. I love watching concepts and design ideas come to life to create an event tailored to individual couples.
