Buddy Valastro Jr the “cake Boss”


Bartolo “Buddy” Valastro Jr. (born March 3, 1977) is an American celebrity chef, entrepreneur, and reality television personality of Italian heritage. He is the owner of Carlo’s Bakery, as well as the face of Buddy V’s Ristorante.

He is perhaps best known as the star of the reality television series Cake Boss, which premiered in April 2009. He has also starred in Kitchen Boss (2011), The Next Great Baker (2010), and Buddy’s Bakery Rescue (2013).

Surprisingly, Buddy Valastro did a cameo in the hit movie Bridesmaids, where he baked one cupcake in the kitchen baking scene only showing his hands.

Valastro is the owner and head baker of Carlo’s Bakery—the bakery featured on Cake Boss. Carlo’s has since opened 17 more bakeries due to the popularity of the show. In January 2012, as a result of the attention that the shop and the TV series had brought to the city of Hoboken, the Hudson Reporter named #Valastro as an honorable mention in its list of Hudson County’s 50 most influential people.

Carlo’s Bakery currently has 7 locations in New Jersey—Hoboken, Marlton, Morristown, Red Bank, Ridgewood, Wayne, and Westfield. Outside of New Jersey, the bakery operates locations in Philadelphia, PA; Bethlehem, PA; Westbury and New York, NY; Orlando, FL; Frisco, Dallas, and The Woodlands, TX; Sao Paulo, Brazil; Uncasville, CT; Las Vegas and most recently in Minneapolis, The Lackawanna Factory in nearby Jersey City, serves as the corporate office for the business and is used as additional space to create wedding and specialty cakes, as well as bake their specialty baked goods for shipment across the country. Valastro launched an Event Planning & Catering company, Buddy V’s Events. The company was launched in June 2014, and specializes in catering everything from corporate events to family gathers, as well as planning events such as weddings and galas.

 

In 2016 Valastro partnered with Whole Earth Sweetener Co. on a campaign to “Rethink Sweet.” “Buddy will serve as the official brand ambassador for the new line of zero- and lower-calorie sweeteners, and will work to help his fans make healthy lifestyle choices, without compromising on taste. Buddy will share his culinary expertise, along with all-new, original and seasonally festive recipes for mouthwatering treats using Whole Earth Sweetener Co. products.”

RIP LEILA ALAOUI

 

Elle est grièvement blessée par balles à la terrasse du Cappuccino le 15 janvier 2016 lors des attentats de Ouagadougou, où elle réalisait un reportage pourAmnesty International8. À la suite d’« une défaillance cardiaque due à des complications post-traumatiques, d’après plusieurs témoignages concordants »9, elle meurt trois jours plus tard6, à l’âge de 33 ans.

 

Les travaux de Leila Alaoui montrent les réalités sociales et nationales dans un mode d’expression aux confins du documentaire et des arts plastiques. Elle travaillait sur les identités culturelles et les migrations en créant des installations vidéos, des reportages et des photographies de studio, notamment dans un studio mobile qu’elle installait au plus près des lieux qu’elle voulait illustrer
