About Jillian Bartolome

Jillian is the Pastry Chef of Paul Qui’s new restaurant in Houston, Aqui. With a start in Michelin-starred fine dining (Cyrus) and a rich experience in classic bakery and patisserie (Bouchon Bakery, Common Bond), she aims to craft desserts that are a balanced and intimate expression of her culinary experiences as a first-generation American. Her modus operandi is simple: work hard, taste everything, pet all the dogs, listen before you speak, teach others, and be honest.
