Restaurant: LMG Pastry Chef Best sellers: I Love New York Cheesecake, Devil Food Cheesecake, dessert buffets
Profile: If there is one person who can be credited for introducing Cebu to dessert buffets and cake pops, it’s Chef Lani Garcia. Garcia has combined her passion for both crafts and baking, and now owns and heads LMG Pastry Chef, which specializes in customized cakes and dessert buffets.
After taking a diploma course at the Philippine School for Culinary Arts in Cebu, Garcia found her passion for pastries and decided to study further by taking up Pastry Arts at the International School for Culinary Arts and Hotel Management in Manila. With the support of her family, and armed with her knack for creating things and natural talent for making pastries, she set up her home- based business in Cebu, and cites her cheesecakes as her best selling items. With her edible works of art, Garcia has not only made the local food scene prettier, but much sweeter, as well.
