Baked It Myself!

FROM FASHION TO TABLE Cheryl Canter-Valesella was raised in Southern California and grew up with three sisters. Her mother and father also had their own catering company. From an early age, Cheryl learned the value of traditional, comfort-style cuisine cooked entirely from scratch. Between informal lessons from her mother, hands-on exploration in the kitchen, and reading cookbooks from around the world, she ultimately decided to fulfill her life’s dream, and in 1998, she started Baked it Myself! out of her apartment kitchen.

She had fallen deeply in love with the more subtle pastries and unparalleled foods of France, which influenced her signature marriage of American cuisine with European finesse. Armed with her passion for honest food, her real-world culinary education, and her culturally diverse palate, Cheryl continues her mission to serve satisfying comfort food alongside innovative fare at Baked it Myself Café in Van Nuys and at catered events.
