Auzerais Bellamy 

About Auzerais Bellamy

Auzerais Bellamy is a professional pastry chef who has dedicated her profession to creating a better place for women and people of color. She grew up in Hayward, Calif., baking for her family and experimenting with recipes. She graduated magna cum laude with a degree in pastry arts from Johnson & Wales and interned at Alain Ducasse’s pastry school in France before a decade-long career in fine dining. She staged at Michelin-starred establishments The French Laundry in California and Daniel and Per Se in New York and worked as the executive pastry chef at Brooklyn’s Pies ‘n’ Thighs and Ducasse’s Benoit Bistro. In 2015 as the pastry sous chef at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery, Auzerais became frustrated with the lack of representation in fine dining and set out to change the industry. Auzerais found her soul as an entrepreneur and founded Blondery, a direct-to-consumer virtual bakery that specializes in a distinctive collection of handmade blondies inspired by generosity. As Blondery grows, it is creating the supportive workplace she sought by hiring people of color and empowering them for careers in the restaurant industry. Auzerais is a lifelong advocate for social change and recently donated half the proceeds from her Brooklyn Blackout Blondies to the Equal Justice Initiative as part of the nationwide Bakers Against Racism campaign. Auzerais lives in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
