About Bronté Bakes
Three 19th-century English sisters who dazzled the country with writings of such passion and originality that they continue to inspire, worldwide, almost two centuries later.
Yes, the name of the owner, baker, and creative director Bronté Weiss was named for the Brontë sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne. Bronté’s mom and CEO Tari Weiss received first editions of Emily’s “Wuthering Heights,” and Charlotte’s “Jane Eyre,” from her grandfather when she was a teen.
She then gave the name to her daughter, who – like the creative, courageous women she was named for – has come to blaze her own trail with passion, innovation and a fierce commitment to excellence.
Bronté is a formally trained pastry chef, having studied at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America and Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. She has further refined her craft at notable L.A. eateries including Wolfgang Puck’s Spago Beverly Hills, Craft Restaurant, Bazaar at the SLS Hotel, and Eataly Los Angeles, as a member of an all-female baking team for two years.
The Brontë sisters – like other female creatives of their time – originally published under male pseudonyms to get their work read. Their sacrifice isn’t lost on their namesake. Bronté Bakes is a female-founded company that has developed trademark bars as the flagship product of her bakery that are bold, brash, and loaded with complex flavors and textures. The end result is a decadent taste sensation that is deeply satisfying.
