      Went to cooking school some time ago near Niagara Falls, thinking I would benefit from learning how to cook, had a few paid jobs working in a kitchen, so I thought why not go all the way. Like an idiot I turned up for the first baking class with measuring cups! Worked in a resort kitchen while at cooking school and when school finished I thought I would try to find work in a bakery, OMG, was I lucky! I landed a job working in a pâtisserie for a fancy pastry chef and sadly ended my career early due to illness working as a pastry chef.

      Hello @danielcosgriffe!  Welcome to the BAKERforum.

      Where in the Niagara area did your work as a Pastry Chef?  A friend of mine has a business in the area as well!

      Did not work pastry until I left school, worked banquets, prep and helped out on line while at school. It was a sous chef, Mark at White Oaks Resort & Spa who also did pastry on the side, he had entered into a few pastry competitions and won a few that was sort of the chocolate shavings on the cake that pushed into the sweet side of the kitchen.  Started working pastry in Hamilton, Ontario for a short time and then moved to Toronto on the sweet side, which lead to marriage, family, house and more thanks to that job in Hamilton, which was a huge positive influence on my life!
