Foodie Classes Through Ethan’s Eyes

Hey everyone! It’s Ethan here.
 
For those of you who do not recognize me, that’s okay: I am a part of the weekend staff here at Le Dolci, and I started mid-February, so I’m still a baby here. Since then, I have had the best time working here – the baked goods are lovely, and the staff are lovelier. When I first walked into Le Dolci on my first day, I immediately felt comfortable; the cute sweets, warm décor, and welcoming staff made what is normally a nerve-bundled first day, into a warming experience.
 
One thing stood out to me in this shop, and that was the long chalkboard with the many classes advertised on it. I don’t know any other bakeries in Toronto – or the GTA for that matter – that offer such classes. I actually had the pleasure of participating in one of the bread making classes on my second day of work! It was really fascinating, and the class brought a homey feel to the bakery – it’s not just a place to bake yummy things, but you actually get a chance to learn for to bake them for yourself too, and I thought there was something special in that.
 
The class turned out to be really fun and, by the end of it, everyone could make their own focaccia, no problem! From what I could see (throughout my now 8 weeks working here), this kind of “leveling up” in baking happened with all students in all classes. People would come in not even knowing how to pronounce “macarons” (I still struggle with that sometimes…we all do) and after taking one class with Le Dolci’s talented pastry chefs, would leave with a box of those same cookies they made themselves.
 
Overall, these classes bake up something warm in the west end. The pastry chefs made their students smile easily, laugh loudly, and, probably most importantly, bake wonderfully.
