As the BC Studio's Assistant Applications Chef, Domenica's roles include helping her fellow chefs with any customer sessions, coming up with various paper concepts to pitch to customers and making sure we always have treats available for our coworkers or events that need a little sweetness. Prior to Barry Callebaut, Domenica held two internships. Her first internship in NYC was as a cafe manager for the Google cafes. Her second was as a R&D Applications Intern at Edlong. This role included testing dairy flavors in different plant based products to make them taste closer to the “real thing.” Her education from the Culinary Institute of America has provided the foundation to make traditional pastries into plant based, gluten free, or dairy free options. As someone who is plant-based, Domenica strives to provide people with dietary restrictions an option that will satisfy their sweet cravings.
