ABOUT CHEF CHARITY GEORGE
All the Way Back to Toddlerhood
Chef Charity grew up in Southern California, as the oldest of 6 children. Charity damaged not one, but 2 Easy Bake Ovens as a child before her mother decided to teach her how to use the “big” oven. By age 12 she had tapped out her mother and grandmother’s cooking knowledge and hit the books as she wanted to know more. She went to culinary school in Paris, France at Le Ritz Escofﬁer, although she didn’t ﬁnish her degree there. She ended up ﬁnishing her degree at Grossmont College in Pastry Arts.

Icing Smiles is a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. We understand that the simple things, like a birthday cake, are luxuries to a family battling illness.
