Each year, mathematicians everywhere recognize March 14th as a sacred holiday—Pi Day. On March 14th (3.14), those who know and love Pi (π), the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter (which is also 3.14), get together, eat actual pie, and revel in the beauty that is the endless number. And if you’re one of the many math enthusiasts who will take part in Pi Day celebrations, let the Pie Commission help with the actual pie part. Roll up your sleeves, and join Chef Michael in making the Pie Commission’s signature all- butter pie crust.

Michael has always had a passion for all things culinary, even from a young age. A last-minute decision in high school took him to the Cordon Bleu in Ottawa, where he enrolled in the pastry program. After working for years at a high-end Italian pastry shop in the capital city (as well as a stint at the Prime Minister’s residence), he decided to head to the GTA. Once in Toronto, Michael spent some time at the upscale Summerhill Market, before moving on to teaching baking classes at the Bonnie Gordon College. More recently, he has worked as a hotel baker in the Canadian far north, and now makes all the delicious dessert pies at The Pie Commission! Michael is passionate about all things sweet, and is always striving to learn more. Aside from baking and pastry, he has a strong interest in chocolate and confectionary, having taken specialty courses in both.
