Pastry Chef, Drew's Pastry Place
Chef Andrew 'Drew' Rogers, is Pastry Chef and owner of Drew's Pastry Place, a unique
bakery and favorite dessert place in northwest Houston at 10300 Louetta Rd. Drew's
offers bagels from New York, specially blended coffee recipes, piles of brightly
colored pastries, mouth watering desserts including his signature Italian cream
cake, Cannoli, cheesecake, Italian cookies, créme brulee and much more.
Chef 'Drew' grew up in Fair Lawn, New Jersey in an Italian family where the love
of food & desserts were a big part of everyday life. Growing up learning to cook
& make the traditional Italian desserts helped to develop his skill & artistry which
has served him well in his journey.
In 2004, at age 40, Drew's wife asked him a simple question - "If time and money
were no object, what would you do?" Since his passion was to cook & bake, having
grown up in an Italian Family, his answer was simple - "I'd be a Pastry Chef.
Turning his "passion into a profession", the married father of 2 embarked upon a
mid life career change (from marketing & advertising) to follow his dream by attending
the Culinary School of Alain & Marie LeNotre and become a Pastry Chef in 2005. Upon
graduating, he began his new career at Houston Country Club under Master Chef Fritz
Gitschner. A few years later, after helping a friend launch a new bakery, Drew &
family finally embarked upon their own dream. A New York style bakery with flair
of southern hospitality & charm was launched in Northwest Houston!
In 2009, Drew's Pastry Place won top honors in City Search's 2009-2010 "Best of"
bakery for coffee, bagels, cheesecakes and wedding cakes. Visit Drew's Pastry Place
