Waylynn Lucas

Shows Eat Drink Love

Waylynn Lucas is a punk rock chick with a sweet tooth, who holds her own in the male-dominated, cutthroat L.A. chef scene. After successfully running her own restaurant in Costa Rica, Waylynn moved back to L.A. where her talents for pastry quickly garnered wide acclaim. After serving as the executive pastry chef for two highly-rated restaurants—José Andrés’ Bazaar and Michelin-rated Patina—and being written up in The Los Angeles Times, Waylynn’s entrepreneurial spirit led her to leave her prestigious job and open up her own bakery, Fonuts, alongside her partner and friend, Nancy Truman. Twice engaged, including a bad breakup with a top chef, Waylynn is ready to shed the skin of her past, but is she really ready to love again?
