During her senior year at U-Prep, Janette participated in the ROP program for Restaurant Occupations. Her on-site assignment at the time was to work with Chef Cal DeMercurio at Rivers Restaurant. Upon graduation from high school, she was offered a position to stay on board as an employee at Rivers, meanwhile starting the Culinary Arts program at Shasta College. When Che’ Stedman, the owner of Moonstone Bistro and also one of her instructors at Shasta, heard rumors of Rivers closing, he offered Janette the position of patissier (pastry chef). While working at Moonstone Bistro she also completed her college education at Shasta College and received her Associates in Science Degree in Hospitality Management in Culinary Arts. After working for Moonstone for a year, she made the difficult decision to leave and begin employment at View 202 to gain additional experience training under another renowned chef, Chef Jason Arbusto. While working as the Pastry Chef at View 202, Janette received a job offer from another one of her instructors from Shasta, Sadie Roy, to be the baker at Simpson University. She remained part-time at View 202 and full-time at Simpson. A few months later she received another job offer from a previous co-worker. Steven Berger and his wife Barbara Berger were opening a new restaurant in downtown Redding, Cafe Paradisio, and asked for Janette’s help. While working as the Sous Chef and Pastry Chef for Cafe Paradisio and also the baker for Simpson, yet another job offer arose when Teri LaHorgue asked Janette to come work for her at Cake is the Best Part to help decorate cakes in August of 2013. Three weeks later, Teri offered to sell the bakery to Janette, and by the end of January 2014 they finalized the switch. Owning her own bakery at the age of 23 is the culmination of everything that she has been working towards. This has been Janette’s dream since she was young, but she didn’t know that she would get this opportunity so soon.
