Hero Profile » About Susan Abbott
The roots of Susan Abbott's culinary inspiration began from watching her father -- a single dad, recreate recipes from "Gourmet" magazine. When Susan's busy parent didn't have time to cook, she was fortunate enough to be exposed to fine dining and fabulous restaurant meals starting at a young age. Susan studied Conservation of Natural Resources at UC Berkeley, but was compelled to change paths and attend culinary school at New England Culinary Institute. She has worked as a pastry chef at various well-reknown restaurants and bakeries in Massachusetts, Vermont and Maine. Susan has been the pastry chef at Rialto Restaurant since 2007, wowing diners with her honest, delicious desserts.
