In 1998 the idea, concept and establishment of Bread & Butter Bakery began. With the support and encouragement from my husband and two girls, I turned my love of baking into a career. With their help, along with a great staff and loyal customers, the bakery has grown more than we could have ever imagined.
I grew up in a family where home-cooked meals happened daily, and Mom was always serving up fresh home baked goodies. She was the first one to teach me how to cream my butter and crack my eggs. I continued baking and cooking while starting my own family, until one day I decided to take the plunge and enrol in the Culinary Arts Program at Niagara College.
After graduating and working for a few years as a Pastry Chef in Niagara on the Lake, my husband and I decided to move our family to Kingston. Moving to Kingston gave me the courage to start my own shop where I could provide home cooked meals and baked goods to other families just like my Mom did for us.
My girls are all grown up from their days of sleeping on flour bags while my husband and I worked late, and now work here too. Our whole family plays a role in making the bakery work, along with another 30 employees who are just like family!
The bakery has grown more than I ever imagined and I can't express how thankful I am to the Kingston community for supporting and embracing us over the years.
