Chef Chat

Chef Chat, Part 1: Candace Chang of Dolce Delights On Learning Pastry in Hong Kong

Dolce Delights 3201 Louisiana Tel: 713-807-7575 http://mydolcedelights.com/

This is the first of a two-part chef chat series. Part 2 will run in this same space on Friday.

When you drive by Dolce Delights in The Mix Midtown complex, the storefront belies what awaits you inside. With soaring high ceilings, a well-appointed, modern space with design-driven furniture and shiny, washed concrete floors, Dolce Delights holds a glowing pastry shelf of jewel-colored dessert creations so tempting, you'll be hard-pressed to stop at ordering just one.

We sat down with pastry chef and owner Candace Chang to talk about her road to becoming a pastry chef and owner of her own shop in just two years.
