About Krumbs

"I live for the moment when my customers see their incredible edibles for the very first time. Nothing brings me more joy than watching their faces light up with great big smiles. The extreme satisfaction is what gets me every time. Knowing I make dreams come true is why I love what I do."


Chef Christian Roder

 

Grandma Would Be Proud

Christian Röder has an extensive background as Executive Chef and Pastry Chef. He was born and raised in Austria, a country renowned for their pastries. At a young age, Christian discovered his love for cooking (and eating) the wonderful array of fresh pastries. He used to help his grandmother in the kitchen make strudels and cakes. Okay, so he helped more with the eating than the cooking, but it was here that he started to take a special interest in the sweeter things life had to offer.

Christian’s training took him all over Austria, learning from some of the top pastry chefs, such as three time world champion Dietmar Patzl. Once he had finished his apprenticeship, he worked in five star hotels and award winning restaurants throughout Austria.

With a strong desire to broaden his experience and skills in other cuisines, Christian took a position on a five star luxury cruise line, Windstar. He traveled the world and discovered new and exciting foods and cuisines.

Christian’s travels led him to San Francisco, where he met his wife-to-be, Taira. After several glasses of wine, and maybe a Jägermeister or two, he decided to stay. Oh yeah, and that’s where Taira lived too. They now reside in the beautiful County of Marin.

Christian is now doing what he has always loved to do since he was young boy wearing Lederhosen and licking the bowl at his grandmother’s house: making cakes -- sharing his passion and talents with others!

And that’s how Krumbs Cakes was born.
