I love discovering new-to-me food-related things happening here in St. Louis, and today's Sustainable Styler is one you won't want to miss. Andrea Reubin, baker and founder of online dessertery Just Sweets, takes the words luscious and fair trade and combines them to make what look like deliciously decadent desserts.
Among her repertoire are dark chocolate cakes with fluffy icing, a raspberry pastry that looks divine, sweet buns, chocolate chip cookies and two different kinds of babka. And they're all made with certified fair trade ingredients.
Reubin sources her supplies through a combination of local farms and fair trade cooperative in Peru, Paraguay, India and Malawi, and it's clear from the language on her site that she's passionate about baking, and doing it in a way that makes a positive difference in the lives of others.
All her desserts are available to order online, either in a single batch or in weekly, monthly or twice monthly subscriptions. Be sure and visit the Just Sweets site to learn more, and keep this place in mind for the upcoming holidays, both for parties and gifts (cause I know I am!).
