In French, Platine means Platinum, and these cookies certainly meet that standard. Each hand-made Platine cookie is created from all-natural ingredients, mixed in a small batch from an original recipe, baked under proprietor Jamie Cantor's watchful eyes, and artistically hand packaged.
Every single cookie is made "to order." That means Platine doesn't bake until you tell them to. This approach guarantees incredibly fresh products. Platine needs five business days notice so they can deliver their cookies at the peak of freshness right to your door. And you'll be thankful. You'll taste the care and preparation with every bite.
Platine's chef and proprietor, Jamie Cantor, lives, plays, and bakes in Venice, California. Jamie grew up in Miami Beach, Florida where early on she showed a passion and talent for baking and pastries. Jamie grew up enjoying the relaxed and cosmopolitan lifestyle the beach city offered and learning to cook from her mother and grandmother.
After graduating from Emory University with a Bachelor of Arts degree, Jamie received an Associates Degree from The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. While in Hyde Park, Jamie was awarded the 1998 Women Chefs and Restaurateurs Scholarship, which enabled her to continue her culinary education at the Culinary Institute of America Greystone Campus in Napa Valley, CA.
After completing her studies and receiving a Certificate in Baking and Pastry Arts, she began work at The French Laundry restaurant as Chef de Partie alongside James Beard Award recipient chef Thomas Keller, and Pastry Chef of the Year Award recipient Stephen Durfee. In late 2001 after several years at the French Laundry and a brief sojourn in Dallas, Texas, Jamie decided to follow her sweet tooth and moved to Los Angeles to begin Platine.
For over two decades, every time Jamie has been asked "What is your favorite thing to make?" she consistently replied, "cookies!" Jamie combines the high standards that she learned in her formal training along with a great deal of passion and a sense of humor to make Platine cookies a superior product. After tasting Platine's freshly baked cookies, it will be obvious to you that Jamie has developed each recipe with great care.
Platine also offers Couture Cookies, for those with discerning tastes. These cookies can be custom made for any occasion with input from the client.
