Pastry Chef Heather Crosby
Heather Crosby received her Professional Pastry Certification from the New England Culinary Institute in 2012. Her love for cooking began at a young age, watching her mother run a cake decorating business out of their home. She always loved being in the kitchen and knew that is the direction she wanted her career to go.
Heather moved from New Hampshire to Wilmington in 2015 and rejoined the EAST Oceanfront Dining Culinary Team as our Head Pastry Chef in 2022. Heather claims the most enjoyable part about working at EAST is being able to experiment in the kitchen and learn more about savory dishes, not just the sweets she love. Heather's favorite EAST dish is her vegan chocolate tart and boasts it is the best thing on our dessert menu.
