Judging Pastry Shops – Chez Hareg


Chez Hareg is located at 1915 9th Street, NW. From their Web site:

Hareg Messert is an entrepreneur who has a passion for baking. She grew up in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where she shaped her vision at the early age of 16 and honed her craft by baking delectable pastries for family and friends. While working under critically acclaimed Chef William, who kept encouraging Hareg, they determined it would be best if she went to culinary school. Nearly a decade after her sweet sixteen she started taking professional classes to fine tune her craft at Stratford University, Culinary School. Hareg was able to develop her fervor and share this with every person who walks into Chez Hareg.

They even have vegan cookies.
