Brittany Bardeleben Pastry Chef

Brittany Bardeleben

Pastry Chef

Brittany Bardeleben is the head pastry chef for Dahlia Bakery, and has worked with Tom Douglas Restaurants since 2011. She previously served as head pastry chef for two Seattle sister restaurants, Betty and Crow. She also spent a bit of time on the savory side, cooking brunch and managing the kitchen at the former beloved Seattle vegetarian restaurant The Green Cat Café.

Brittany is a Seattle native who grew up in Issaquah and graduated from South Seattle College, where she studied pastry and specialty baking. Her hobbies include wine tasting, shopping for antique treasures, and when she has time for it – traveling.

She resides in the Mountlake Terrace area with her husband Trevor, and their little boy Lucas.


Stacy Fortner

Pastry Chef

Stacy Fortner started as a pastry cook in Tom Douglas Restaurants in June of 2009.  Only seven months later, in December, 2009, she was promoted to the top pastry position of Executive Pastry Chef. Prior to her role with Tom Douglas, Stacy was the Pastry Chef at Seattle’s Columbia Tower Club and Mistral.  She also spent some time on the savory side of the line at Brasa, Marjorie, and 727 Pine.

Stacy was born and raised in Kentucky.  She’d been cooking for her family ever since she was 11 years old.  By the time she was 15, she started working for a small restaurant, taking her own money down to Mullin’s General Store to buy the food she needed for her recipes.  Six years later, she graduated from Sullivan University in Louisville, Kentucky, with a Bakery and Pastry Arts Degree.

Though Stacy’s culinary roots are definitely in the American South, she plans to occasionally pull inspiration for her pastry menus from her seven months of travel throughout Latin America where she experienced the ever changing flow of food, culture and people from country to country. In her spare time, Stacy loves to snowboard, a skill she learned in Vail, Colorado, and continues to practice in Washington State.
