As a child, Mark DiGiambattista constantly pleaded with his mother to allow him to “experiment” in his family's kitchen. There was a thrill and sense of adventure for Mark when he perused his mother's box of recipes - written on 3” x 5” index cards. After he found the perfect recipe, Mark went to work on attempting to follow the instructions. Not too many of these creations came out the way they were intended, but the fun was in the process. Later on, Mark endeavored to recreate the fantastic desserts his relatives made on special occasions, like Italian lemon cookies and custard pie. Throughout the years, Mark continued his baking projects. He can remember the first time he successfully recreated his grandmother’s custard pie and presented it to his mother on her birthday. The joy on his mother's s face gave him an overwhelming satisfaction!
Mark has pursued a career in environmental science over the past 20 years, but he is still drawn to baking. Baking Project Seattle is a continuation of the baking adventures of Mark's formative years. Whether Mark is thumbing through recipes on index cards, which he inherited from his mother, or watching cooking shows, he is always curious and eager to experiment with new recipes. With a more refined palate and several years of home baking, Mark is excited to share his love of baking with Seattle!
