Pastry Chef Elise Russ has been passionate about dessert since she was a child, elaborately decorating cookies with piles of icing that had no hopes of ever hardening. After taking a cake decorating class at the local JoAnn's, she launched her career making custom sweets for her neighbors and keeping her grandfather supplied with biscotti and pizzelles. Advancing past cakes shaped like Barbies and soccer balls, Elise pursued a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. She worked in hotels, restaurants, and bakeries in London, Chicago, Georgia, and Maryland before settling down in San Antonio. Elise is the Pastry Chef and Owner of Clementine with her husband John Russ and a proud member of the San Antonio chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier International.
