Hi, I’m Locke Jiranek and I make pie crusts from Almonds! I’m a southern girl, born and raised in Pensacola, Florida who attended the University of Alabama, Roll Tide Roll. I majored in Hospitality Management, graduated in 2007, and began life after college working as a General Manager for an all fresh, fast casual restaurant concept. I fell in love with a West Coast man, moved out to sunny Southern California, have two beautiful daughters, and love being their mom. I’m an entrepreneur at heart and make each pie crust, pie and quiche with lots of love.
First, I’d love to give you a quick briefing in the world of Pie Crusts.
