In 2012, Munch Bakery was born through an obsessive journey to make the perfect macaron with a Filipino flare. Little did the baker know that in her journey to conquer a traditional French cookie that she would find her own voice, breaking with Filipino and French traditions and melding the two into what she describes as “The Taste of LA”.
What started as catering orders within the South Bay and Orange County areas, Munch Bakery really took off at the Torrance Farmers Market in Spring of 2014. Their unique flavors of macarons including ube, horchata, and azuki are inspired by the rich cultures of the surrounding immigrant communities.
Munch Bakery is creating new traditions within the South Bay. Most of their clients come to the Torrance Farmers Market weekly, trying the unique flavors inspired by the different cultures. It’s a highlight for the owner to be a part of these weekly gatherings witnessing her customers create new family traditions as they share a little taste of LA in every macaron.
