The Valley's own Julia Baker, founder, executive chef, and CEO of Julia Baker Confections, is no stranger to success. The Le Cordon Bleu grad and Paris-trained chef is currently making sweet Christmas gifts for Elton John, designing Robert Redford's birthday cake, and recently, got ink in the holiday gift guide of People Magazine for her Red Hat Box chocolate assortment.
The latest big move for Baker will happen over the next two weeks. That's when she'll be opening her new flagship chocolate boutique and wine bar at the Biltmore Fashion Park in East Phoenix.
And by the looks of it, it's going to be as luxurious as the chocolates.
Featuring a sophisticated seating area, a marble floor, and mirrored backlit display cases for browsing hand-cut chocolates and gift box collections, the new Julia Baker Confections promises to be more than just a sweet shop.
Thanks to a wine bar, chocolate lovers can sit and sip while perusing a menu of Baker's signature chocolates and desserts such as red velvet cake.
The Julia Baker Confections flagship store will be located at the Biltmore Fashion Park between Williams-Sonoma and White House | Black Market. For more information or to purchase Baker's chocolates online, visit her website.
