Happy Pi Day! Guess what I’ve got for you?
Baker Lauren Ko (A.K.A. Loko Kitchen) is a wizard with geometry. And color gradients. And pie. All of my favorite things wrapped up in one, really. A secretary by day, Ko is (are you sitting down?) SELF TAUGHT, and only started making pies 3 years ago. Can you believe it? These amazing creations were made by an amateur!
“I’m an executive assistant with no professional culinary or pastry training/experience. What I have to show is simply a product of going for it with a measure of patience and a sharp knife.”– Lauren Ko interview with Mic
Ko doesn’t even sell her masterpieces. After over-pieing her “poor” husband, she says she now gives the pies away to friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Lucky, lucky people!
