TSP Bakeshop specializes in pastries, cookies and cakes made from scratch.
WEST RICHLAND, WA - A mandatory college cooking class at WSU led one woman to culinary school, then to owning her own bakery.
Jamie Christensen opened TSP Bakeshop at 4850 Paradise Way in West Richland in December. The French-inspired bakery specializes in pastries, cookies and cakes made from scratch.
For five years, Christensen owned a wholesale baking business with her sister, but after her sister moved to North Dakota, Christensen and her husband decided to look for a retail location and found the perfect spot by Yoke's Fresh Market.
"I love that food brings people together, it always did that for my family and sitting down and having a meal together, being in the kitchen, cooking together - I love that," says Christensen. "I think people are happy when they're doing that!"
