Maya-Camille Broussard serves pastry and education through Justice of the Pies

The Chicago based bakery owner shares her own approach to success


Maya-Camille Broussard is the chef and owner of Justice of the Pies, a bakery concept specializing in sweet and savory pies that she started operating out of satellite kitchens in Chicago in 2014. It’s an LC3, or a low-profit limited liability company, which has a primary mission of providing social benefits, but unlike non-profit organizations, is allowed to distribute profits.

Broussard’s mission is to positively affect the lives of people in the underserved communities where she operates through education in creativity, including baking, as well as nutrition. She also operates the non-profit Broussard Justice Foundation focused on food- and health-related issues.

She opened her first brick-and-mortar bakery, on Chicago’s South Side in her mother’s former dentist’s office, in June.

Broussard also is the star of the Netflix series Bake Squad, and her cookbook, Justice of the Pies, was published by Penguin Random House in 2022.

The baker, who is in New York City as a visiting fellow at the James Beard Foundation, recently discussed her mission and the importance of showing young people how to achieve their own dreams.
