Established in 2007, Delectable Desires Pastries began as a home business locally in Mattapan, MA. Founder and Pastry Chef Charlene O’Garro started by making pies and cakes for friends and family that had a touch of her family’s Caribbean roots. This quickly developed into the need for a formal kitchen in Jamaica Plain and, in January 2015, the first retail location opened in West Roxbury.
As they continue to grow, Delectable Desires Pastries still make all of their baked goods from scratch with flour, butter, sugar, a sprinkle of the Caribbean and lots of love. Their pies are a deliciously sweet option for any holiday, occasion, cookout, or regular weekday. Choose between 5” or 10” sizes in varieties like Blueberry, Very Berry, and Caramel Apple.
Charlene’s love for cakes and pastries began when she was young while spending Sunday’s in the kitchen with her mother. After graduating from Jacksonville University in 2004 with a degree in Biology and Psychology, she was accepted into Suffolk Law School. Deciding to follow her lifelong passion and forgo her acceptance into law school, Charlene enrolled at Cambridge School of Culinary Arts for Fall of 2006 and established Delectable Desires Pastries in March of 2007.
