So this is the updated version of the ‘about me’ page. [2.12.14]

My name is Gail Ho, I’m 22 years old and I live in the Netherlands France. Before, I wrote that was studying Industrial Design at the Delft University of Technology and that I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be an industrial designer or not. I have made up my mind. I have earned my bachelors degree of industrial design, but decided I want to be a pastry chef. So I enrolled for the pastry program of Ferrandi and in February 2014, I moved to Paris!

After 5 months of going to school 5 days a week, I had a summer break and started my internship in August. In the first week, the place was a bit confusing for me. From the second week on, I felt like I was at the right place. I still feel that way right now, three months later. I made the right decision to come to Paris and I’m very very happy that I got to do my internship at this place.

Next to food I like creative stuff, like photographing food and drawing food. Just kidding. Maybe not. Ok, so the creative person in me is the reason why I initially went to Delft to study industrial design engineering -study about designing all kinds of consumer products-.
Then halfway through my study, I realized I really have a passion for food. I’d rather work hard, stand on my feet and create desserts all day long than to sit behind a desk and doing something I don’t have a passion for. So here I am. Working hard and doing what I love.

Thank you for reading my blog!

    All your photos and food look amazing! I’m 22 and am currently studying communications as well as food studies. I want to save up some money before I go to pastry school though. As of now I’m just baking and blogging on my own, though my food doesn’t look half as good as yours does 🙂

    • Gail Ho

      Thank you very much! Yep pastry school is expensive, but as of now: still all worth it. 🙂

  • Catherine Clevinger

    Cool, I am going to try the apple pies, they look great although I have to convert the amounts and oven temps to our system.
