Kaila Brenchi
Pastry Chef
Growing up in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Kaila Brenchi watched her grandmother make cookies and cheesecakes, and later, she added decorative touches. After graduating from Cape Henlopen High School, where she studied art, she entered the Wilmington restaurant industry.
Brenchi started as a server but soon realized she could combine her love of art and desserts in the restaurant kitchen. She earned a degree from Delaware Technical Community College and took a field trip to Belgium and the Netherlands to explore Europe’s classic confections—and world-renowned museums.
Her experience in school and abroad underscored her love for approachable dishes with layered flavors and textures. An exceptional pastry chef does not rely on sugar alone to create the perfect end to a meal. Moreover, a pastry, cake or cookie must look as good as it tastes. 
Back in Delaware, Brenchi was the pastry chef at the acclaimed Pizza by Elizabeths in Greenville, Delaware, before joining the team at Snuff Mill Restaurant, Butchery & Wine Bar in Brandywine Hundred, where she works under Bill Irvin and Chef Robert Lhulier, who also studied art.
Now she handles the dessert program for Snuff Mill and The Brandywine, Snuff Mill’s sister restaurant. Both allow her to flex her pastry skills and imagination to produce seasonally inspired desserts with high-quality ingredients.
