A note from our Host:
'Hi, I’m Barbra. I’m a self-taught baker based in Barrie, Ontario. Over the past few years, I’ve taught myself the best practices in baking cookies and cakes. I started Bites By Barbra as I believe anyone can make cookies that are not only delicious but gorgeous to look at. I’m a certified food handler and offer catering to life events both big and small, from corporate luncheons to your toddler’s cake smash! I also love supporting my local charities and organizations, such as Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, The Hospital for Sick Children - SickKids, Stevenson Memorial Hospital, and the Barrie Chamber of Commerce.. I take great pride in using the best ingredients for everything I bake, and only use eggs from my own free-range chickens!
I hold a B.A. in International Trade from McMaster University. The degree has come in handy as I start my own small business, and work towards future plans of shipping Bites By Barbra across the world. When not wrangling my one and a half year old son, writing or recipe tasting, I can also be found taking walks along kempenfelt bay, going for long bike rides or runs through the country, and of course watching my chickens. You can follow along my baking journey on Instagram - @bitesbybarbra.'
