She graduated with a biology degree from Emory University, but through a turn of fate, she pursued her culinary dreams. Initially training to become a Chef, she was taught handmade, fresh-baked artisan breads working in the highly-acclaimed bakery of Bacchanalia Restaurant. She discovered her love of food and science was perfectly blended in the challenging world of professional artisan breads. She then went on to become the lead baker for Kimball House, a multi-award winning southern restaurant and cocktail bar. Wanting to broaden her knowledge of global breads, she made her way to Los Angeles. Mahsa was fortunate enough to join the team at Michael's Restaurant in Santa Monica, an iconic restaurant of 40 years. The birthplace of many of L.A.'s finest Chefs, it was here where Michael gave her freedom and creativity to broaden their house-made bread menu during her tenure. She now teaches workshops throughout Los Angeles, to students of all ages and levels, in elementary schools, private homes, and cooking schools.
