Episode 24 Interview with Sir Bruno Serato from Anaheim White House and Caterina’s Club

In this episode we bring you an interview with Chef Bruno Serato. Chef Bruno is the owner of the historic Anaheim White House restaurant but what really has made him known around the world is the non-profit organization he founded – Caterina’s Club. Named after his mother, this organization serves 5,000 warm meals to underprivileged kids every single night. Caterina’s Club has expanded to 90 sites in 30 cities.

Sir Bruno SeratoThis interview was conducted before the coronavirus pandemic and I’m sure you can imagine the demand for Chef Bruno’s non-profit work has been in great demand, not just by underprivileged kids but the larger local community. Since the pandemic has hit Orange County, Chef Bruno’s charity has served 1 million meals. That is very impressive.

The White House restaurant has a great vibe and it was really great getting a tour of this historic place by Chef Bruno. One last thing to point out, if you google Bruno Serato, you’re likely to see Sir Bruno listed – that’s because he’s made such an impact that he’s been knighted by the Italian government.

Cambro Eats Episode 7 – Interview with Jacquy Pfeiffer of the French Pastry School

This week’s episode spotlights Chef Jacquy Pfeiffer, President and Co-Founder of the French Pastry School in Chicago.

With the simple goal of training much-needed pastry chefs, the French Pastry School was launched. Since its start, the School has become a mainstay of the culinary hub in Chicago.

In this episode, Chef Jacquy details his early interest in baking, followed by years of international culinary experience.

He also reveals what it was like being a central figure in the 2010 documentary Kings of Pastry. It followed Chef Jacquy through the grueling process of the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France – a nationwide skills-examination for the highest accolade in France.

 

Add to that a best-selling cookbook, “The Art of French Pastry,” and we had a lot to cover in a podcast. Please check out the links below.
