Country Velador of Super Chunk Sweets and Treats on Black Licorice for People Who Don't Like Black Licorice and Yupha's Thai Kitchen

This is part two of our interview with pastry chef Country Velador of Super Chunk Sweets and Treats in Scottsdale. In addition to opening her own sweet shop, Velador also crafts the dessert menu for Cowboy Ciao restaurant and helps supply bread for Counter Intuitive, the grab-and-go sandwich shop that will be headed up by Cowboy Ciao's former sous chef Garrison Whiting. On Monday, we talked to Velador about how Super Chunk got its beginnings in caramel corn. You can read that part of the interview with Country Velador here.
