Patricia Polin

I am a native Floridian and in 2015 I decided to moved my family to Philadelphia. I taught at a technical college in Lancaster PA with Chef Susan Notter for two years. In 2017 I excepted the position as Pastry Chef to The Master's Baker in West Chester, PA in 2017. This bakery is a custom cake shop that makes 1,600 wedding cakes a year! The bakery does not have a retail store front. They make everything from scratch from Pate a Choux to wedding cake. Previously, I worked 10 years at Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress under the guidance and direction of Executive Pastry Chef Steven Rujak.

I attended Valencia Community College earning and AA Degree as well as an AS Degree in Baking and Pastry Management in 2005 in the inaugural class and received the honor of President's List during my two years.

It is such an honor to be teaching Pastry Arts at Valencia where I once was a student of Pastry Arts!

I enjoy teaching and broadening the minds of students pursuing their passion for pastry.
