BAKE IT UP! by Lorena

Ciao and welcome to Bake It Up! I am Lorena, an optical science graduated-turned-certified baker living in Toronto. I am Italian and since I was a child the kitchen has always been that sacred and happy place where I could experiment, be creative, or just let go of some heavy days. If I am not baking, I am certainly thinking about it—always searching for the perfect recipe to share during my workshops.

Bake It Up! was founded in 2013 with a desire to meet more baking enthusiasts. The community grown fast and a few months later I started teaching baking classes to share what I had learned in my journey through baking. In 2016 after attending a program in Baking Arts at George Brown College in Toronto I became a Certified Baker and I began working as a Chef Instructor at corporations, no-profit organizations, and after years of private events, now, I share my passion through baking workshops online. Teaching is something I absolutely adore and the pouring support from around the world it is astonishing and so humbling. It has been an experience I am truly grateful for. If I can get at least one person a day to smile over a dessert, they made on their own I have achieved my goal!
