Jeff Gosche is a pastry designer whose affinity for the kitchen started
at a very young age. The grandchild of a small bakery owner in the
Midwest, Jeff spent a lot of time in the kitchen watching his mom
make all sorts of baked goods for holidays, birthdays and everyday.
When the time came, he enthusiastically took on those responsibilities
Fast forward to the late 90s -- having moved to the Bay Area, Jeff
found himself laid off from a job in technology so he decided to start marketing his products to friends. Word of mouth expanded his customer base and a serendipitous introduction to the owners of Miette Patisserie in Oakland accelerated his momentum.
Today, Jeff's passion for baking combined with his wildly creative imagination produces cakes and cookies that are truly awe-inspiring. Jeff has continued to work with Miette for the past 15 years, designing and decorating their seasonal sugar cookies and instructing a monthly cookie decorating workshop.
Jeff is also the pastry chef at the Village Inn and
Restaurant in Monte Rio, California where his
pastry design business, Fabino, is located. This
Sonoma Country location allows him to bring
his design expertise to bear on projects for
many wineries including JCB, Korbel, Paul
Mathew and Woodenhead, along with other
local businesses. Beyond that, Jeff is a regular
collaborator on special event projects with the
Gordon Getty Family Foundation and Saint Francis
Foundations in San Francisco.
