Edmund's Oast Restaurant - Pastry | Charleston, SC
After school, she moved to Highlands, NC where she started as an extern and continued as a pastry cook for several years under well-known pastry chef Larry Brubaker and Executive Chef Johannes Klapdohr. After Heather and her fiancé Shawn visited Charleston on vacation, they fell in love with the food scene and quickly decided to make the move. She was soon hired by Tristan as Amanee Neirouz’s pastry assistant and also made desserts as the Pastry Chef for Social Wine Bar. When the owners closed Tristan to open 492, she served as the Pastry Sous Chef. There she was able to create desserts that highlight her love for seasonal produce and integrating sweet and savory flavor combinations.
In July 2016, Heather joined Edmund’s Oast team as Pastry Chef and it has introduced more people to lemon verbena and other ingredients from her childhood.
