The DeSoto Chamber is proud to announce that DeSoto ISD graduate, Chef Gabrielle McBay (from ABC’s “Job or No Job”), will be doing a live cooking demonstration during the DeSoto Living event. According to Chamber President Laura Terhune, “Gabrielle McBay (affectionately known as, ‘Chef Elle’) turned her love for pastries into a business in high school at the age of 14. Her creative aspirations propelled her into pursuing a culinary career.” Terhune continued, “McBay honed those skills at Texas Christian University, and soon after transformed her pastry business into Ellements Cuisine. We are thrilled that she will demonstrate her skills on the DeSoto Civic Center Stage.”
