Pemberly Place Proudly Introduces Pastry Chef and Chocolatier Wes Foley
Pemberly Place Senior Care Living Community (pemberlyplace.com) proudly introduces their new pastry chef and chocolatier, Wes Foley. Wes has been in the business for more than 30 years, anchored to his art background in New York. Back in the 80s, though, Wes began to find a new love for the arts in the pastry industry and began to apprentice with chefs from all over to master the art of baking. Starting in the art industry might seem a little backward, but Wes believes that his passion for the culinary arts was always there and just needed to find its way to the top!
Wes had a friend who was a chocolatier and was amazed by the artistic finesse he manifested with chocolate. His friend took Wes under his wing and began to teach him the tricks of the chocolate trade. After working at other establishments in Lincoln, Wes decided to start a new path at Pemberly Place to get back to the family feel of cooking, which allows him to be more creative. He’s already taken desserts at Pemberly to a whole new level, and residents never go without something chocolate on the dessert cart! It’s not surprising that comments like “Wow, Wes knows what he’s doing!” and “Wes is a keeper!” are commonplace among residents and staff.
