When Sascha Biesi and Yauss Berenji started Skull & Cakebones five years ago, they based it on their food standards: If they wouldn’t feed it to their child, they wouldn’t feed it to yours. From utilizing high-quality ingredients, they were led to good people, out of which was born the most important part of what they do, community partnerships. They partner with other local foodies, taking the best of what their favorite people do and making those ingredients stars of their recipes, even co-branding on the front of their packaging. They do it because they love their people, and because their philosophy is that when we get together as a food community, not only do we make products that taste better, but we can also help lift each other up to reach our goals. In 2017, they were the grand-prize winners of the H-E-B Quest for Texas Best contest, and their layered desserts are now available at H-E-B.
