Bonjour, I’m



Welcome to Miel et Ganache,
I’m so glad you’ve found
your way here.

Bonjour, I’m Ariane!

Welcome to Miel et Ganache.

Baking is my lifelong passion.

For me, baking is about intention, intuition, and anticipation.

Launched in January 2023, Miel et Ganache is the culmination of my baking dreams.

Place your orders with Miel et Ganache for delectable cookies! They are baked to order, and delivered fresh to your door.

Enjoy a Saturday stroll through Marché Maisonneuve, where you'll find a Miel et Ganache kiosk on select dates this summer and autumn! Montréal's outdoor public markets are a culinary highlight of the city.

Miel et Ganache offers baking workshops at Maison Winslow in Montréal's Old Port. Come have fun and learn baking tips and tricks in a beautiful, intimate setting. Reach out if you want to collaborate for a private event or host a class together!

Do you love to bake as well? Here you'll find dessert recipes that you can recreate at home. From classic French pastries to humble Americana bakes, you'll find a variety of desserts that highlight all kinds of sweet ingredients. From recipe development and testing to the photography and editing, I absolutely love it all.

I first started working in restaurants when I was 18. I enrolled in the professional pastry program at the Institut de tourisme et d'hôtellerie du Québec (ITHQ). I had so much fun learning all about baking and having access to such a great kitchen and a plethora of ingredients. I graduated from culinary school at 20 and kept working in kitchens in Montréal and abroad. During that time I obtained my Bachelor's degree from Concordia University in Creative Writing and Women's Studies. After 8 years in the grueling restaurant industry as a line cook and pastry chef, I traded in my apron for a cardigan. I worked in public libraries for 7 years, at first as a clerk and eventually as a librarian once I obtained my Master's degree from McGill University. Being surrounded by books while working as a children's librarian was so wonderful and rewarding. As a pastry chef and librarian, I love to intertwine my passions for baking and books. I'm especially interested in exploring Jewish culinary history. Since September 2023, I am back in the restaurant world part-time as I pursue my Miel et Ganache endeavours.

I'm writing to you from my hometown of Montréal. I am Jewish and Québécoise, French is my mother-tongue, and I’m fluent in both French and English. From its restaurants to café culture, Montréal has such a vibrant culinary scene. In my twenties I moved abroad a few times, lived in Bath (England), Sydney (Australia) and Lausanne (Switzerland), but found my way back to Mtl (a true Montréalaise at heart).  I've been fortunate enough to have many travel opportunities, and dream of seeing many more places in my lifetime. Travelling is such a great way to learn about all kinds of culinary histories and traditions.

When I’m not in the kitchen you can find me browsing Montréal’s many wonderful bookshops and record stores, wandering through the botanical garden, at the yoga studio, sharing a meal with friends and family, catching a concert or burlesque show, or snuggling with my cats at home. You might also find me up north in the Laurentians at a cosy cabin, by the firepit or swimming in the lake.

Bon appétit!
