Today: Audrey Enriquez of Sheraton Wild Horse Pass
Audrey Enriquez's history with pie goes way back. Growing up in Prescott, she used to play around in the kitchen a lot — and it was after baking her first pie that she knew she wanted to pursue a career in baking and patisserie. She came to the Valley to attend Le Cordon Bleu, and after graduating, she spent two years living and working in Chicago. She returned to Phoenix and worked at The Buttes Marriott Resort in Tempe and The Sancutary Resort/Elements Restaurant before joining the team at Sheraton Wild Horse Pass, where she supervises all pastry production and preparation for five dining outlets as well as banquets. These days the self-described "Pinterest abuser" and "sushi aficionado" lives in downtown Phoenix with her three dogs and spends her spare time dining, spending time with family, and relaxing.
