Sweet & Savory - Two Jersey Shore "Scratch Made" Bakers Share Their Passion & Tips For The Trade

Updated: Mar 24


I recently had the pleasure of interviewing these accomplished bakers, who are both making amazing food during this uncertain time. I learned a lot while speaking with them and of course, sampling their creations!


Jan Holderness:

The creator of The Downstairs Kitchen, a wholesale baking company, makes some of the most delicious and aesthetically pleasing pastries that I've ever seen. Jan Holderness uses only the purest ingredients. Each pastry tastes like it was individually baked just for you. One of her specialties is the Ouefle - a crust less quiche - soufflé to-die for and which I first tasted at the Asbury Fresh market.
