It seems only right that, on our 20th anniversary as an artisan bakery, we create a national public showcase to recognize and honour up-and-coming artisans who are helping change the way we all think about food.
In 1993, ACE Bakery began baking artisan breads at a small bakery café. Today, thanks to the support of bread lovers, food retailers and restaurants, ACE breads are available across Canada, the United States, and the Caribbean.
We hope that the Artisan Incubator will help 20 other artisans achieve the success they want while also drawing attention to the thousands of talented and hard-working artisans who put their heart and soul into everything they make.
Food artisans from across Canada submitted their profiles and, together with our Tastemakers, we selected 20 deserving artisans in March. We will bring them to Toronto this June, celebrate their craft, introduce their foods to a wider audience through public workshops, and share what we have learned over the last 20 years.
