The former veterinarian is the head baker at St. Vincent’s dining room in Reno, Nevada.”One of the fascinating things about being a veterinarian is you get to interact with people and help people every single day and sitting at home on the couch you don’t have those opportunities,” Klaich told KTVN.

He’s in the kitchen at 5:15 a.m. five days a week to begin preparing 1,100 portions of baked goods from scratch.”We went through 75 pounds of flour today, about 15 dozen eggs,” he said before explaining his secret to the tangy taste in 18 orange-cherry sheet cakes he’d prepared.Klaich typically wraps up by 10 a.m. each day and said he has no plans to give up his baking duties any time soon.”Oh, I’m gonna stay till they kick me out,” he said.
