Sherry Yard

Brooklyn-born Sherry Yard is a nationally acclaimed chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, teacher, and presenter, who spent her extensive career making a mark as a disruptor in the hospitality industry. Her innovative and uncompromising approach has garnered three James Beard Awards and an induction into their Who’s Who of Food & Beverage in America. She has received accolades from renowned publications such as Bon Appétit Magazine, Food + Wine, and became affectionately known by the media as “L.A.’s Sweetheart,” both for her bubbly personality and her incomparably creative fresh-from-the-farm desserts. Her career included working with the Wolfgang Puck empire for nearly 20 years, encompassing the crafting of masterful breads, creating menus, and opening new restaurants while simultaneously mentoring an entire generation of chefs in kitchens from Singapore to Santa Monica. Her pastry creations became staples at events such as the Academy Awards Governor’s Ball, the Grammy Awards, and the Emmy Awards, where she could be spotted in her iconic pink chef’s jacket in support of breast cancer awareness. Yard is the author of 2 award winning cookbooks, is currently working on her third, and appears on the iconic and widely popular Great American Baking Show, serving as a judge.

Her latest project, Bakery by the Yard, is a culinary incubator, where she collaborates, creates, and celebrates her decades of experience!
