About the Host
Originally born in Atlanta, Georgia, Anna grew up in Toronto, but found her way back to the U.S. to study culinary arts at Johnson & Wales University and work in Colorado and New Orleans. While initially trained in the world of savory cooking, Anna is equally recognized for her abilities in the pastry kitchen, having worked as a professional pastry chef since the mid '90's. She is proud to call Niagara home, and has lived and cooked here for over 15 years.
Anna's culinary philosophy is based on a common-sense approach of cooking and baking with the seasons as well as respecting the ingredients, the technique and the process of sharing with others through food. Most of all, cooking and baking should be fun!
