It all started with a beloved workplace tradition. Every Friday in St Henri, Montreal, our office celebrated a job well done with something sweet, usually a cake.
As our team grew, our dietary preferences became more and more diverse. Finding options that were nut-free, vegan, kosher, and gluten-free meant everyone could enjoy the end-of-the-week treat. Not to mention, variety is the spice of life! We couldn’t just bring the same cake from the same bakery around the corner every week.
Every Thursday, a major search was conducted to find places and dessert items to buy fresh for the next day’s team meeting. This task became time-consuming and challenging, as there were no sweet-toothed resources designed to assist us with this monumental task.
While our love of desserts remains constantly stimulated and influenced by the resourcefulness of those just like us, we want to use this stage to highlight refreshing social movements. We take a multidisciplinary approach to represent the huge variety of desserts that are out there. We feel that dessert unites people together, no matter gender, race, age, religion, sexuality, or political opinion. Let’s enjoy the richness of diversity and embrace the goodness of life!
We hope that you will find time away from your worries and enjoy exploring the variety of products out there in this wonderful world. There is so much waiting to distract you from your daily challenges. Live your life and try tasting something new every once in a while.
We hope that you will enjoy using Dessert Advisor as much as we do.
