This probably should have been my first post - oops!
Hello all, I am a 22-year-old jack-of-some trades.
I started in the hospitality industry working as a baker at a local cafe.
Then I moved to England and got a Uni Diploma in Brewing Technology (yes, beer).
I worked for two seasons in a remote hotel in the Scottish highlands as a pastry chef, under a Michelin Star chef - talk about a learning curve!
And then I had an incredible opportunity to work with an English microbrewery for nearly a year, as their brewer, pub manager, and general go-pher.
Since I had the time, I figured I'd bike around Germany and Belgium from brewery to brewery; who wouldn't?
Now I'm back in Canada, working as a pastry cook in a fine dining restaurant.
I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking, making, and learning about food and beverages. I homebrew. I roast my own coffee. I want a grain mill for flour (next birthday!). I like to debate, I love to learn.
I look forward to meeting you guys!
