New Pastry Assistant Wows GBCC Members

Have you savored a dessert at Green Bay Country Club recently? Fresh, club-made desserts are served at GBCC thanks to our new Pastry Assistant, Franciane Hencke.

Franci joined GBCC in September on a part-time/as needed basis and is happy to be a part of this team. 

Her path to pastry artisan has been a circuitous one. Prior to working in food service, Franci had a banking career for over a decade. She graduated with high honors from Fox Valley Technical College for Culinary Arts as well as Baking and Pastries. While at Fox Valley Tech, Franci earned silver medals in state and regional cooking competitions sanctioned by the American Culinary Federation. She also competed as a student in a professional pastry category and earned a gold medal.

Franci is certified by the ACF and is currently pursuing the next level of pastry certification in January 2018. Prior to working at GBCC, Franci was the pastry chef at Mahoney's in Oshkosh.

When not working, Franci enjoys spending time with her husband, studying and creating recipes, and traveling.
