Assata Rhodes

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Assata Rhodes fell in love with the art of baking at a very young age. By the age of 11 she was baking, packaging, and selling her homemade cookies to classmates at her middle school. 
Since then, with the guidance of the women in her family, she's been teaching herself the language of food. Throughout the year she bakes cookies and various seasonal pies while catering and continuing to grow her menu. 
No matter how expansive the AssataBAKES menu gets, the star will always be her signature dessert, Sweet Potato Pie Bites which are made from a recipe that her New Orleans bred grandmother passed down to her.
