Buddy Valastro is a fourth-generation baker who was born into the business owned & operated by his parents. He grew up in Hoboken, New Jersey in an old-fashioned Italian family. You probably know him from the TLC hit series “Cake Boss,” or from visiting one of his many bakery or restaurant locations. In this episode, we talk about his first job in Carlo’s Bakery at age 11, what it was then like taking over the bakery as a 17 year old, how he deals with his anxiety, what he learned about himself while recovering from his recent hand injury and more. Buddy has worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation for many years and discusses how it has impacted his life. Enjoy this episode as we go Beyond the Plate… with Chef Buddy Valastro.
