Meet Our Sponsor (Again!): Allison Galentine with Caviar & Bananas!




     Pastry Chef Allison Galentine has done it again and for that, we are grateful! As a Second-time supporter of Cupcake Camp Charleston, Allison works full-time for Caviar & Bananas Gourmet Market & Cafe and has teamed up again to help Cupcake Camp Charleston become a reality. Last year, she won Best Decorated (Best in Show) with her "Pecan Pie Charleston" Cupcakes. Allison can be reached for your personal catering needs.  Contact Allison at meissner.allison@gmail.com for more information. 
     Caviars & Bananas Gourmet Market & Cafe is owned by Margaret & Kris Furniss. This husband and wife duo bring a shared love for the charm and unique culinary offerings of a boutique New York City-style market to their two Caviar & Bananas locations in Charleston, SC. The pair met 10 years ago while working together at a high-end restaurant in New York City. Kris had recently left a financial career at Morgan Stanley to pursue his passion for the food industry when he met Margaret, a communications and branding professional who shared his love for the big city's culinary culture. Embracing their mutual epicurean interests, Margaret and Kris left New York City for the warm weather and natural beauty in Charleston, SC. The pair envisioned a Lowcountry twist on a big-city gourmet market, and the idea for Caviar & Bananas was born.   
     Caviar & Bananas serves quality products and offer gift cards, gift baskets, delivery, pick-up, catering and event services as well.

Allison Galentine - Pastry Chef at Caviar and Bananas

1. What is your favorite cupcake? Without a doubt Chocolate Salted Caramel.
2. Favorite Lionel Richie song:
I had to do some research on Lionel Richie because I was quite honestly unsure of who he was. After listening to a few songs I would say All Night Long.
3. You're baking on Cupcake Wars on The Food Network and you can only choose a pirate or a ninja for an assistant.  Who is your helper? Pirates would be more fun... however they probably would plunder all the pastry loot; so I will go with the silent skillful ninja. 
4. What was the last thing you baked in the kitchen? Ginger Pumpkin Muffins.
