Haley Landa and Curtis Helm met in pastry school and have been steadily building their skills and experiences in hotels and restaurants in Canada and beyond. All this work has culminated in opening Goodside Pastry House in Victoria last month, opening to huge lineups and extremely happy customers.
In this episode, Mark takes a trip to the bakery to chat with Curtis and Haley around the bench, in between some test bakes and the start of their weekly croissant production. They talk about the baker's lifestyle, and leaving yourself open to opportunities as they arise, the slow buildup of a clientele in Victoria, leading to the opening of their own brick and mortar shop. It's a fun, energetic chat with several pearls of hard-earned wisdom.
