Please join us for our February meeting with Morgan Botwinick, owner of Whisk and Scoop!

February 7, 2019


Morgan graduated from UVA with a degree in English; however, decided she decided to move to New York and attend the International Culinary Center (formerly the French Culinary Institute) where she was taught the essence and art of French pastries.

Armed with a culinary degree in pastries, Botwinick decided to move home to Richmond and worked at the Jefferson Hotel before venturing out on her own, selling baked goods at farmers markets and later setting up her own shop, Whisk, which is located in Shockoe Bottom and is known for its croissants.

When Botwinick first opened Whisk in 2015, she wanted to incorporate ice cream but decided to hold out for the right time and place. However, Whisk did allow her to play around with ideas and test flavors via the shop’s famous macaron ice cream sandwiches. In 2018, Botwinick found her ideal space, in the former Video Fan location on Strawberry Street.

Scoop opened in 2018 and offers both signature and seasonal flavors.  Click here for more info on Whisk and Scoop
