A place to get to know us and our products
Get to know our youngest and oldest crew members, discover a local product we use and find out a little bit about what makes this baker tick.
Ever heard of Paska? This traditional Ukrainian Easter bread is a bakery favourite and is the perfect product to highlight this month along with the local ingredient integral to the richness of this bread. Meet another amazing crew member who works in the kitchen with me.
It is time to think about spring, which for us means working even harder in the kitchen to keep our customers happy. You will meet one of our younger crew members and discover her connection to our local ingredient of the month.
Local rhubarb is one of our favourite products to use, just have to find room in the freezer! This business has grown so much in the past few years and it is largely due to people like Heidi who work in the kitchen with me during the week. We have a pretty unique story about how she came to work for us.
Croissants have not always been part of my repertoire. Despite resisting the idea for a while my product line changed considerably when I had the opportunity to accompany the VIU baking program to France and Belgium in 2017. With another original story we introduce you to Naia, a lovely member of our crew.
Fall means comfort foods. We have a recipe for you using local ingredients for Leek and Potato soup and of course soup pairs with any of our breads! And we have another lovely member of our team for you to meet who came to us through the dog door...got you curious now don't I? and no that is NOT a picture of her here!
