So here is the second installment of the "Chefs of Fort McMurray". I decided to do Candace Cheney who has a home based business called "Nice and Sweet" as well as being the Pastry Chef at the Sawridge Inn and Conference Centre. I chose Candace for a million reasons...but mostly because she maintains my "Girlish Figure" with oodles and oodles of sweet things.
Alot of people in town have contacted me thru various means to ask if I could make a cake for "such and such" reason...I suck as a baker...I can do it, but my male "lack of patience" does not allow me to do it well. Candace on the other hand Rocks at it...and she is the person I always hand people off to. She pushes the limits daily...and it shows in both appearance and taste in her work.
The final reason for doing her Bio is she doesn't get mad at me when I say "Nice Shitter!" hehe
You can contact Candace for all your Baking needs at : firstname.lastname@example.org or 780-715-5064

Have women changed the face of professional cooking?
Traditionally all through time a womans stereotypical place has always been in the kitchen, the home kitchen that is. Actually I take that back it wasn't so much a stereotype as it just was what it was. I actually think traditionally that is where most women wanted to be, taking care of the home and spending time with the children. Whether thats because of the maternal instinct or because that is what they felt society expected of them, I don't know. But oh how the times have changed, we see more and more men staying at home being the caretaker and more women being the career focused, financial provider.
