“It’s about that connection we can all have when we bake something together.” – Valery Jean-Bart

Honoring the memory of his mother is what Valery Jean-Bart set out to do when he started his culinary enterprise 10 years ago. In the four years that Jean-Bart spent caring for his mother after she was diagnosed with breast cancer, they formed a tradition of spending every Sunday baking cheesecake together. Making the pivot from civil engineer to entrepreneur after his mother passed was a courageous step for Jean-Bart, one that would soon take off and evolve into Val’s Cheesecakes. Baked into every jar is a story of passion and legacy.

Cheesecake in a jar. An all-electric Cadillac. Fresh perspectives on timeless favorites. Jean-Bart travels in the all-electric LYRIQ from his central location in Dallas, The Shop, to a new community kitchen across town that serves as an incubator for risk-taking individuals like himself. A space nurturing creativity for a new generation of trailblazers.
