From Scratch Bakery is located in the heart of Oakville. The open and airy 2000 square foot space features a wide selection of our fresh baked, home-style, and high end pastries. Everything is baked from scratch, using only the finest ingredients from Ontario.
Our chef baker, Dorie Greenspan grew up in a house of baked goods. The home bake-sales she hosted in her early days were legendary.
She can remember multiple occasions when her mother sent the 12 year-old Dorie over to the sale with the instructions “just get whatever you can!”, only to arrive and find that she had sold out in less than 2 hours! For ten years she ran Dorie’s Bake Shop in Montreal, and produced the amazing cookbook Baking: From My Home to Yours! The book includes recipes for delicious cakes, pies and of course her famous macarons.
She spent five years studying Catering and Management, then another decade or so in various pastry chef jobs around Europe, Australia and Canada.
