Dennis’ love of baking started at a young age. His grandmother, Alice, would save the leftover crust just for him so he could make petit jam filled pastries. One of his fondest baking memories is of the 3rd grade when he made fortune cookies for his classmates.
Through the years, Dennis held several positions in the food industry from starting out as a bartender, moving on to become a chef de cuisine, and eventually to become a pastry chef. As his passions from his childhood grew, his dream of opening his own bakery grew as well. This dream would last over a ten-year span before applying to the French Pastry School in Chicago, Illinois in 2007.
While attending the French Pastry School, Dennis landed a job with Art Smith (Oprah’s personal chef) at his brand new restaurant, Table 52. Art focused on comfort foods your mother or grandmother would make, but took them to the next level. During his employment, he appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2007 and even appears on her website. Table 52 was packed every night and Dennis had the opportunity to cook for some very important people including: President Barack Obama, Robert Redford, Lisa Ling, and Al Roker.
Dennis takes great pride in his many accomplishments from his experience in Chicago including receiving a diploma from L’Art de la Patisserie. It was there that he was able to work alongside Sebastian Cannonen MOF and Jackie Pfeiffer, two highly-esteemed pastry chefs in the world.
In 2010, Dennis opened Alice Bakery & Confectionary from a beautiful storefront in his hometown of North Wales, Pennsylvania. His meticulous, hand-crafted breads, sweets and savory foods served in a casual setting met with great success and lead to a second location in the bustling town of Ambler, Pennsylvania.
