Andrew Kazakoff, Chef & Owner

Alison LaFrance, B. Comm., Pastry Chef & Owner

After saying goodbye to her corporate desk job, Alison made the bold step toward turning her passion for
pastry into a full-time career.

Alison graduated at the top of her class as valedictorian in the Baking & Pastry Arts Diploma program at
SAIT. During her studies and travels to Italy, Belgium & Austria, she learned the importance of technique and
using only the freshest & finest quality ingredients. This provided Alison with a foundation for future success.

Building on that foundation led to experiences opening; Redwater Grille with Chef Ned Bell, Notable, The
with Chef Michael Noble, and the Sirocco Golf Club with her mentor Chef Guy Leggatt, where she has
been the Pastry Chef for 6 years.

Alison's passion for continued growth and development have led her to classes with The Caketress in Toronto
and a working stint with Thomas Haas in Vancouver. Alison is also on the Board of Directors for the Alberta
Pastry Chef Guild where she enjoys sharing her knowledge and experience with other pastry professionals.
