Amanda Pallagi-Naim

Executive Pastry Chef

Growing up cooking with her grandmother in rural Texas, Amanda's natural craftiness and prowess in the kitchen turned into a full-fledged business in high school. Despite this early success and subsequent roles in restaurants, Amanda didn’t consider culinary school until 2008 when she joined Four Seasons Hotel Austin as a restaurant hostess. Drawn inexorably to the pastry shop, she was taken under the wing of the executive pastry chef. Over the next five years, Amanda took on increasing levels of responsibility before her promotion to executive pastry chef in late 2015.
