Dana Pollack, pastry magician, and Mom-trepreneur
Former photo-editor of Muscle and Fitness magazine, now trained pastry chef, Dana Pollack is the creative force behind Dana's Bakery. Studying fine baking and the pastry arts at NYC's Institute of Culinary Education (ICE), Dana was drawn to French macarons for their beauty and distinct texture. Surprised by the lack of variety in flavors she began pairing these traditional French treasures with desserts she grew up eating (and still eats to this day).
Mother to her daughter Leni, Dana currently lives in NYC. Most recently on QVC for the bakers at home, DIY Macaron Making Kits. In 2017 Dana won EY's Entrepreneur of the Year award (regional) in the Emerging Business Category.

In June 2018 Dana expended her product line with the launch of cookies & Mookies™ - a cookie stuffed with a macaron inside. These cookies are already insta-famous, especially the classic black & white with a rainbow twist.
