Sara received an invitation to move to New York City to work with Master Chocolatier and Executive Pastry Chef of FIKA NYC, Håkan Mårtensson, which she did in September of 2010. Sara quickly earned the title of Executive Pastry Chef of FIKA NYC and was thus responsible for the cakes, pastries, breads found in three of the FIKA cafe locations.
