[ the dude ]
I am the proud owner of a local baked-goods company in Hollywood, California. When I was a child, the only way my parents could get me to read was by putting baking recipes and cookbooks in front of me. I have been fine-tuning the same secret formulas since I was nine years old, and have added depth, knowledge and understanding to my repertoire by taking professional baking courses starting at the age of 13.
I was given the nickname, Duido (dwee-doh), at birth after my great-uncle and have dreamed of creating a successful baked-goods company since I can remember. Seeing people enjoy my products is both humbling and fulfilling. I hope you try these freshly baked goods--whether cookies, breads, cakes or any of my other specialities. They are all handmade with love.
