Zoë François is the star of the Magnolia Network’s “Zoë Bakes,” as she shares her journey from art major to master pastry chef. Her fame reaches far beyond Minnesota, first from the bestselling series of “Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day” books and now to “Zoë Bakes Cakes,” recently honored as best baking cookbook by The International Association of Culinary Professionals. Her recipe for Devil’s Food Cake alone is invaluable. Her detailed yet conversational instructions are a gift, from beginners learning how to “thwack!’ a cake to the more ambitious tackling her gorgeous pavlova. Enjoy reading about Zoë at, then register to learn and laugh on March 14th. Grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, depending on your time zone, and enjoy the sparkling personality of Zoë François. (Be forewarned: She may have us dancing!) Women’s History Month is a perfect time to shine a light on women in our industry through this series of fun and educational events.
