Chef Mitch Leger will be teaching us his tips and tricks in our 4 Week Bread Masterclass on Monday nights. After a short period as an elementary school teacher, Chef Mitch found himself gravitating towards food and cooking. He'd go to restaurants and would have his favourite desserts and think, "I wonder if I can make that?". He began baking and slowly moved into making breads spending hours experimenting with various recipes and tweaking them until he perfected them.

Chef Mitch opened a restaurant in Kingston, where he was Head Chef and made all the desserts and breads. He is now the Head Chef for a small restaurant just outside of Kingston. His passion for bread and teaching has led him our way and we are excited to have him join the Le Dolci family.
