Hi, I'm Matthew James Duffy!

I am a dedicated teacher who loves inspiring people to learn the art of sourdough baking. I have spent over a decade in constant pursuit of knowledge to refine my skills, improve my technique and master my craft.

I graduated from the University of Guelph with a bachelor's degree in Hotel and Food Administration, and a culinary diploma from the Stratford Chef school. I am a Red Seal certified Chef and over the past 15 years, I've worked in some of the world's finest restaurants and hotels, as a chef with a passion for baking bread. After years of apprenticing with some of the best bakers in the field, I became a Baking Professor and the Baking and Pastry Arts Management Program Coordinator at a leading Canadian college. All while running a successful micro-bakery.

Find panettone intimidating? Let me help you start your panettone journey.

I have been learning to make panettone for 5 years. I have had many failures followed by many successes. I know the lows can be low and with not much information available it can be a lonely place to learn.

My goal is to explain the process to you step-by-step in a way that is accessible, fun, and easy to learn!
