Meet Chef Emilie Metwalli

Emilie graduated from the Culinary Management program at Humber College in 2003, and spent several years working for Accor Hotels, Hilton Hotels and several restaurants in Toronto, before finally settling at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel. The Westin, a former Starwood Hotels property, is where she began to hone her skills as a Chef and understand more about hotel management. Working as an Apprentice, then as a Commis 1 and finally a Chef de Partie, Emilie then moved over into the Culinary management team to gain the necessary skills to further her career. This move also helped her to prepare for her role at Canadore College, where she currently teaches and is proudly sharing her passion for Culinary Arts with future Chefs. When she is not in the classroom, she enjoys baking with her two girls, who have grown to love spending time in the kitchen just as much as she does.

Meet Baker Olivia Popp

Olivia Popp is a grade 10 student at École Secondaire Catholique Algonquin. Olivia started her business in June of 2020. Olivia was famous with her family and friends for her talent to bake the best desserts and they started placing custom orders with her. The orders kept coming in so she decided to start a business and share her love for baking with everyone else!

Olivia has baked all the treats and prepared the boxes for the students for this event.

Elements of Risk

The risk of injury may exist in experiential learning activities. Due to the very nature of some activities, the risk of injury may increase. Injuries may range from minor sprains to concerns that are more serious. The safety and well-being of students is the prime concern and the participating boards shall make their best effort to manage this as effectively as possible. The management of injury risks is the responsibility of the caring adult supervising the student in the at-home environment.

Age of Majority

If a student has attained the age of majority, the signature of the parent or guardian is left to the discretion of the activity leaders. Parents are invited to telephone the school if they require additional information.
