Ayako

Calling Ayako a pastry chef doesn’t quite translate what she does, she’s a pastry sculptor and artist: shortcake somehow reminiscent of a ripe peach, braided pigtail pie, and scented floral cookies. We shot her in the kitchen of Burrow, her tiny Dumbo bakery tucked discreetly into an office building.

The most meaningful piece of jewelry I own is

my wedding band, which I haven’t removed since my husband and I married.  My father asked me to show him my ring at the wedding, it was very shiny compared to his wedding band which was worn for many decades and the comparison is a fun memory I treasure. My wedding band now has 12 years of worn signs.

My favorite thing about Brooklyn is

the rhythm of life.

I find inspiration for my work and life in

very simple daily thing like a twig on the street.
