CLAIRE THOMAS AND LAUREL GALLUCCI
Sweet Laurel | Pacific Palisades, California
Laurel Gallucci and Claire Thomas had met as bridesmaids at a wedding and bonded over a love of old-fashioned cooking, film noir, Los Angeles history, and blush-colored roses. When Laurel, a passionate baker known for creating grain- and sugar-free confections, took a sample cake to her longtime friend, Claire suggested a partnership—christened Sweet Laurel.
“Sweet Laurel’s foundation has always been about education and empowerment.” —Laurel Gallucci
