Meet Jade: Our Pastry Chef Extraordinaire!

As we celebrate International Women’s Day, there’s no better time to shine a spotlight on the remarkable journey of Jade, our talented commis pastry chef here at Dunadry Hotel and Gardens.

Get ready to be inspired by her journey, filled with passion, creativity, and a whole lot of sweetness!

Picture this: it’s 2019, and Jade has just finished her A-Level studies. She begins working as a waitress here at Dunadry Hotel and Gardens, thinking it’ll be a fun way to spend her gap year. Little did she know, her life was about to take a deliciously unexpected turn! During those lockdown days, Jade discovered a hidden talent – baking. What started as a quarantine hobby soon turned into a full-blown passion.

Now, let’s talk about transitions. Going from serving tables to whipping up pastries in the kitchen wasn’t a piece of cake (pun totally intended). Jade faced doubts, uncertainties, and a whole lot of “am I doing the right thing?” moments. But with the support of her amazing colleagues and a sprinkle of determination, Jade embraced every challenge as an opportunity to learn and grow.

At Dunadry Hotel and Gardens, we believe in the power of mentorship to nurture talent and inspire growth and Jade found her guiding light in our senior pastry chef, Jill. Jill not only taught Jade new skills but also became her cheerleader, pushing her to believe in herself and her incredible talent. With Jill by her side, Jade’s confidence soared, and her pastry game reached new heights.

Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes in a bustling hotel kitchen? Well, Jade’s here to spill the beans – or should we say, sprinkle the sugar! From dreaming up delectable desserts for our guests to experimenting with new flavours and ingredients, Jade’s days are never dull. And trust us, every bite of her creations is pure magic.

What Jade loves most about her role is the opportunity to bring joy to others through her creations. Seeing the smiles on our guests faces as they savour her desserts is the ultimate reward for her hard work and dedication.

So, what’s on the horizon for Jade – she’s dreaming big! Jade has her sights set on opening her very own bakery one day, where she can share her love for pastry and all things sweet with the world. At Dunadry Hotel and Gardens, we’re proud to support her on this journey and with her talent, we have no doubt she’ll make it happen.

As we celebrate International Women’s Day, let’s raise our spatulas to Jade and all the incredible women making waves in the culinary world. Thanks for bringing a little extra sweetness into our lives, Jade! We can’t wait to see what delicious creations you come with next.
