Welcome! My name is Heidi and I am the owner of The Grateful Baker. The story of my business begins many years ago. I was born into a small but mighty rural Nova Scotia family of talented cooks and bakers. In fact, my parents met when they were both working in the kitchen of a famous inn located in a town rich in history. I have baked my entire life but always as a hobby and I loved to share it with others. In 2019, I lost my family through a series of terminal illnesses and during the ensuing grief journey, I found myself baking more as a way to honour them and to process my new reality. I was also in a period of career transition and one day, it was like a light bulb went off...I could do what people have often suggested and open my own baking business! I am very excited to be taking that step and to share both my love of baking and my gratitude for my heritage with you all.
