Pastry Chef Donna Love

In spite of her degree in Medical Technology, Donna was destined for the world of pastry. She grew up with a background in restaurant and pastry shops and taught herself the art of gourmet pastries when her husband designated her as the baker in the duo’s Sweetwater Inn restaurant in Moultonboro during the ’80s. “I have a knack for picking out and tweeking recipes to find the perfect combination,” she says. Customers were blown away by her sweet treats, and the couple later opened Love’s Quay in Wolfeboro and a pastry shop called Love Bites. She joined the Co-op pastry team in 2009 with a focus on our specialty desserts, cakes, and tarts. Her favorites here at the Co-op are the White Chocolate Creme Brulee and Almond Ecstasy Tart. “People don’t think of the Co-op for cakes, but they will!” she says, referencing the recent renovation and bakery expansion. She’s glad to leave the stress of business ownership behind, working with a supportive team, and having the freedom to create whatever desserts strike her fancy for our shelves.
