About ASI / Instructors / Carstens Smith

Carstens Smith

Carstens Smith, like most bakers, started as a small child by sitting on the kitchen counter and getting in her mother’s and aunt’s way while they baked. She honed her skills with years in 4-H, watching PBS cooking shows, reading cookbooks, and working in some excellent small bakeries.
