Calgary’s Only Truly Gluten Free Artisan Donut
My love of cooking ignited at an early age, the next thing that ignited was my mom’s kitchen. (Sorry Mom) Once the house was rebuilt and I was allowed to cook again, I went on to carefully develop my love of cooking and build on my skills.
I meet the love of my life while I was working as an insurance broker. Although I enjoyed the challenges my career gave me, the job didn’t allow for much creativity. My wife also loves to cook and bake so we would often find ourselves creating beautiful meals together instead of going out.
We took a leap of faith and signed up for a farmers market. I was going to become a weekend donut warrior. People loved our donuts, they thought they were innovative and unique.
This is when we knew were on to something. I left the corporate world behind and became a baker. We want our donuts to be an experience unto themselves, and so we treat them as such. We are always talking about different inspirations that we can make into the next donut. Since I couldn’t just stop at donuts we now have brownies, tarts, and the best cinnamon buns we even offer vegan and dairy free in addition to the already gluten free, peanut & tree nut free goodies we already had.
We now have the honour of having a product people can enjoy after years of not being able to and it has brought a few tears to their eyes.
