My name is Ivan Abbott Houston, a native Angeleno, 4th generation Californian, and engineer, baker, candy maker.
My cooking philosophy is simple. It’s called the “chew factor”. If it looks like this, then it has to chew and taste like that. Good taste with the right chew are extremely important to me.
I’ve been motivated by the positive reactions from my friends and family who’ve tasted my creations and said, “you ought to sell this, people will love it!” And, so I am.
