In this interview I have the pleasure of interviewing Dufflet Rosenberg, Founder and CEO of www.DUFFLET.com
An alumnus of École LeNotre north of Paris, Dufflet Rosenberg (CEO, Dufflet Group Inc) travels extensively seeking new ideas and inspirational concepts.
In 1989, she founded Great Cooks, a cooking school that showcases local and international celebrity chefs. Dufflet continues to be in demand for demonstrations in several of Toronto’s leading cooking schools, as well as on TV and the Web.
Dufflet’s recipes have been included in many books, periodicals and on-line. She has been featured on American Food Channel’s ‘Best Of’, whose host, Mark Silverstein remarked “Toronto’s ‘Queen of Cake’ proves size doesn’t matter because her pastries stand head and shoulders above the competition!”
Dufflet supports and sponsors a number of annual events including Toronto Taste (Second Harvest), Eat To The Beat (Willow Breast Cancer Support), and Bloor Street Entertains (CANFAR). In addition, Dufflet Pastries practices a philosophy of giving back to the community by donating baked goods or gift certificates to fundraisers, arts events, and charities in the Greater Toronto area.
An avid cyclist, Dufflet presents Tour de Dufflet annually to coincide with Toronto’s Bike Month. For a nominal registration fee, participants can “Eat More Cake, Ride More Bike” by cycling to all 3 Dufflet cafés in one day for snacks and prizes. Fees collected from registrants are donated to cycling activists Cycle Toronto.
Dufflet has served on the Advisory Board to the Toronto Food Business Incubator since 2003. The TFBI supports new and early-stage businesses in the food and beverage industry.
