About Dawn

Dawn has had a passion for wholegrains since an internship at a bakery in the Bavarian Black Forest in the 1990’s.  Since then she has become a recognized leader in the world of whole grains, experimenting with a range of grains and creating whole grain pastries and crackers celebrated for their irresistible flavor and texture.

Dawn is co-owner of Evelyn’s Crackers, started in 2008 with her partner, Edmund Rek. They named their fledgling business after their daughter, Evelyn.  Evelyn’s Crackers is a farmers-market based business in Toronto that produces crackers, pastries and baking mixes from local organically grown wholegrains.

Dawn also teaches bread classes at George Brown Culinary College and has taught wholegrain baking at the Grain Gathering for the past six years. She continues to be inspired by farmers and works closely with them developing products highlighting their grains.

From time to time the Bread Lab will offer workshops on a range of subjects exploring whole grain flavors and techniques in milling, baking, and cooking.  To receive notice of future classes and events please sign up for our email here: emails.
