Michelle Edgar

Owner and Chef at The Sweet Escape Patisserie

Michelle started in the kitchen at a young age, working beside her mother baking cookies and cakes and father cooking Sunday dinners. She was fortunate enough to have other great teachers including a life changing job working at Olson Foods +Bakery alongside Food Network Chef Anna Olson.

Moving to Toronto in 2006 Michelle landed herself a few choice jobs in Toronto’s best restaurants, most notably at the Yorkville institution Sassafraz. In 2008 the urge to experiment and create without limitations became all encompassing and The Sweet Escape Patisserie was born with the help of business partner Jason Poynton. Michelle is now free to be the mad scientist she has always dreamed of being.
