Auset is a New York City native, currently
residing in Oakland, California. She has worked
in the food services industry for over 13 years.
Her training began learning vegetarian and vegan
cuisine, working as a cook at a not-for-profit yoga
and meditation retreat site in Upstate New York,
and India for a few years. After her time there,
she attended and graduated from the Culinary Institute
of America in Hyde Park, New York and studied Culinary Arts.
Shortly after, Auset traveled through Italy and France
WWOOFing (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farm)
on organic farms and Bed and Breakfast's, learning
authentic French and Italian cuisine.
Upon returning back home to New York City, Auset started working as a Private Chef and became a certified Health Coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. At tis time she also transitioned from working as a line cook to a pastry cook. As a Private Chef, she cooked for people with dietary restrictions and special dietary needs with the intention to support people in healing themselves through food and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Auset has worked and staged in fine dining and Michelin Star in New York, LA and Paris such as Restaurant Daniel, Trois Mic and Le Chateaubriand. Auset has always loved baking, and due to her own health issues, over time, it was note possible to continue eating baked goods with refined sugar, wheat, gluten, dairy and these items not affect her health. She has always been interested in making gluten-free, vegan and refined sugar-free desserts and her restaurant experience in pastry allowed her to develop the skills to create her own recipes and create desserts that she would want to eat.
It is very rare to hav a gluten-free dessert that is also refined sugar-free, and vegan. Or a vegan dessert that isn't loaded with sugar and also gluten-free. This is how the idea of Sweet Love came to be. All Sweet Love desserts are vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar-free. No one gets left out.
