Hero Profile » About Philip Speer
Philip knew he wanted to be a pastry chef from a young age. With the guidance and inspiration of a family friend, he learned the importance of having a strong foundation of baking in order to have a large bag of tricks to pull from. With this piece of advice, Philip started working in bakeries where he really honed his skill and then he moved on to restaurants. He worked in various places in and around Austin and Houston before he landed in Uchiko in Austin, where he has been happily making pastries and desserts since 2005.
