Girl Power Tour with Rebecca Masson and Brandi Key

Join Houston Chefs Rebecca Masson of Fluff Bake Bar and Brandi Key of Punk's Simple Southern Food and Coppa Osteria for a tour driven by Girl Power. Two female chefs and friends, who love food and want to show off their favorite spots. This is a tour you won't want to miss. The tour will go on sale Wednesday June 1. The tour date is July 17, 12 noon to 4 pm.

Rebecca Masson has found sweet success in her adopted hometown of Houston by following a childhood love of baking that has taken her from Paris to television.  Affectionately known locally as the Sugar Fairy, and in culinary circles the Sugar Hooker, the cool, colorful, outspoken – and by all accounts – outstanding pastry chef debuted her first brick and mortar location in Midtown in 2015.

No one sums up Brandi Key better than Brandi herself: "I like to make things that take time. I like making things from scratch with my hands. Keeping things simple... using really amazing products and just letting it be. All of me believes that making food with emphasis on loving what you do will always produce the best-tasting food no matter what the concept."

Key, who grew up in a rural farming community in Texas, understands the value of local, seasonal ingredients, which so strongly represents her cooking style. Whether drafting a new menu for Punk's Simple Southern, Coppa Ristorante Italiano or Coppa Osteria, Key is as comfortable in her kitchen as she is juggling the pressure of multiple concepts.
