All it took was a well made hollandaise sauce for Daniel Saez to switch from life as a lawyer to a life in food. Starting as a culinary chef in his native Venezuela, Daniel eventually made his way to Canada and shifted from culinary to pastry and finally to bread. Now his bakery, Noctua Bread Project in the Junction in Toronto is focused on serving the best possible baked goods to the people in his vibrant, eclectic neighbourhood.
In this episode, Daniel shares his story of deciding to leap into food, moving to Canada and overcoming the stresses of opening his own bakery. We also dig into the importance of sticking to one's vision and principles, and using them to guide difficult decisions.
