Soirée Palmier

A lesson with a baking duo.


Biography of our baking duo: Evan is a life-long Oklahoman who pursued his childhood dream of working with Elephants – landing him a job at the Tulsa Zoo. Evan now works with people as the zoo’s Membership and Admissions manager. Several years ago, while home from work with a bad back, Evan fell in love with baking while binge-watching The Great British Baking Show. After baking his way through a season of the show’s cookbook, Evan developed a real knack for the art of baking delicious cakes and pastries. Jared, a native of North Carolina, moved to Oklahoma in 2013 as a part of Teach for America where he began teaching Middle School Science. He now teaches both French and Science at Clyde Boyd Middle School in Sand Springs. Jared fell in love with the French language in high school and afterwards, in college, where he got the chance to live in Lyon, France for 6 months.  Jared and Evan married just a year ago, traveling to Paris and Biarritz on their honeymoon. They live in midtown with their English bulldog, Albus and English mastiff, Max.
