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.
 
Book your spot in one of our foodie classes to be part of an amazing experience!

March 15th #SelfCareSunday

This past Sunday, the #SelfCareSunday event hosted by Fat Girl Food Squad & P.S. You’re Beautiful was a fabulous success! The afternoon was spent with beautiful ladies making chocolate truffles, getting chair massages from Epione Massage Therapy and hair touch-ups by Small Talk Barber Shop and Salon, drinking Fresita mimosas and spritzers, and more!
 
All attendees left with a gift bag including a self-care guidance booklet and more. Thank you to all the amazing and inspiring ladies who came out to this event. 
 
Fat Girl Food Squad aims to provide a safe, positive space for all bodies, while showcasing those who label and identify themselves as fat and endeavouring to breakdown the stereotypes and barriers that surround such a controversial three letter word.
 
P.S. You’re Beautiful is a community of strong women with loud voices who have something to share, from beauty and body image to pop culture commentary and everything in between.
 
Check out a few of the snaps from #SelfCareSunday by Geeky Girl Photography.
