Faye Jonah, native – New Jersey, has always had a love for food and sharing it with her family and friends. After earning an economics degree from Rutgers, she moved to Atlanta in 2002 and worked as a buyer for a major industrial packaging distributor. She has always had an entrepreneurial spirit, and knew early on that she wanted to combine that with her passion for culinary arts. In 2009, she began studying at the Art Institute of Atlanta, graduating with a degree in Baking and Pastry in 2011. She has been highly involved in the Atlanta pastry community, to include organizing one of the Southeast’s premier pastry competitions and seminars, Pastry Live, assisting Chef Paul Bodrogi, CEP and lead instructor at Le Cordon Bleu Atlanta.
She launched Pastry Atlanta, an event within Pastry Live, showcasing local talent to both national and international attendees. She began to work part-time at diAmano Chocolate in November 2013 and quickly grew to love the company and its dedication to making high-quality chocolates. With the support of her mother and her aunt, she and her family took ownership of the company less than a year later, and together they have maintained their commitment to providing unique and innovative confections to an ever-growing customer base.
