Meet the driving force behind Kep Whitley, Elesha (Kep) Whitley. I am a pastry chef that is wildly passionate about food and the joy that sharing it with others can bring.
Late to the party of being in love with your career, before trading my heels for steel capped boots I spent most of my corporate life immersed in some of Australia’s biggest food manufacturers which fuelled a long time obsession for big ideas about small pleasures.
Honoured to have been inspired by internships recently served with the below pastry and chocolate institutions
Pump St Bakery & Bean to Bar Chocolate, Suffolk, UK
Happy Endings Dessert Bar aka Fraise Sauvage, London, UK
Wawa Chocolatier, Docklands, AU
Modern Australian Food set by by the stunning Docklands waterfront
