At Hot Cakes, they support farmers who understand the importance of giving back to the soil after it has provided and who treat their animals with kindness.
Autumn Martin is a 4th generation Washingtonian and is proud of her Northwest roots, which inspire a lot of her work. Autumn graduated from the Culinary Arts Program at Edmonds Community College in 2002 as Student of the Year and now Distinguished Alumni.
She was Pastry Chef at the world-renowned restaurant Canlis from 2002-2004. At Canlis, Autumn realized it was time to devote her world to chocolate and in 2005 became the Head Chocolatier for Theo Chocolate where she created award-winning confections and chocolate bars for nearly 5 years before leaving to pursue Hot Cakes full time.
Autumn’s work at Theo truly expanded her passion for the chocolate and food industry. Her sturdy skill for developing extraordinary flavor profiles has lead to many awards and a devoted following. You may already know and love some of her previous work such as the Bread and Chocolate bar, Coconut Curry bar or the Burnt Sugar ganache. She loves to rock climb, snowboard, surf, eat and love.
