The Story Behind the BakerEleven years ago, Erica was diagnosed with a wheat allergy. Being a lover of all things delicious, she quickly became tired and annoyed at the measly selection of feeble tasting, dense and expensive gluten free baked goods in the market place. In 2009, Erica took a break from nitty-gritty New York City to explore international fashion industries and lived in Japan, Guam and New Zealand. While living in New Zealand, she worked in a gluten free bakery and found the experience enlightening and very rewarding. She returned to the New York groove in the summer of 2010 with the intention of trading in her sewing machine for a spatula and using her design and baking skills to open up her own gluten free bakery.

Erica Fair is a successful fashion designer, world traveler and relentless goofball. She was raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and has been living in NYC for eleven years with her husband Brian and turtle, Princess Spike.
