A household name in our home, Tate’s Bake Shop was voted the Best Bakery in the Hamptons for years and became a destination for locals and tourists alike. Today’s guest is the founder and owner of this legendary bake shop, Kathleen King.

Kathleen started making simple, all-American desserts over 3 decades ago when she was just 11 years old and opened her first bake shop at 21.

— The great lessons about making money from a very young age.
