Preparing Dough


I had a passion for food from a very young age.  I remember always re-seasoning my dad’s food while he wasn’t looking.  Eventually he figured it out and encouraged me to ‘make it taste better’.  I have been so fortunate to have grown up with parents who always grew a garden, and hunted.  We grew up with friends who are farmers, so even though I didn’t realize it then, I was immersed in knowledge of where food came from.  The core of my youth was learning about and experiencing food.  It only made sense to pursue a career in it, so I graduated from SAIT in 2004 with a Professional Cooking Diploma, and by 2007 I was a Red Seal.
What REALLY brought back my passion was accidentally stumbling upon a cooking school for kids in Calgary.  Long story short, I quit my job as an executive Chef with a good salary, because I knew that was where I needed to be.  I got to see a space I am so comfortable in through new eyes.  Teaching people is my passion.  Teaching kids and teens is rewarding beyond words.  I love it when they discover that a recipe isn’t a rule, it’s a guide.  I love it when adults find renewed enjoyment in what can sometimes feel like a chore.  I love sharing my passion for food!
