ABOUT Michał

In 2016, pastry chef Michał Doroszkiewicz was named ‘Industry Personality of the Year’ in Poland. And this means a lot to him. ‘I learned to bake from my mother in my home town of Białystok. On Saturday or Sunday morning, we always baked a cake for after Sunday dinner. At that time there were no pastry shops there, so my mother baked our treats herself. She was my first teacher and instilled in me a love of working with seasonal produce. At the age of 15, I went to pastry school in Pozna´n and trained with Wojciech Kandulski, who had a very reputable business and who opened international doors for me. I served as a jury member at national and international professional contests and represented Poland wherever I could. When I received the Industry Personality of the Year award in 2016, everything came together for me. It made me feel like all my efforts up to that point had been greatly appreciated.’

‘Our authenticity can be felt in everything we do and sell.’
