Alumni in the Community Spotlight: The Edible Story

Contributed by Natalie Taylor — Toronto’s Old Town is quickly getting re-energized with new places like The Edible Story, an appetizing story from two of our Chef School graduates, Brian Cheng and Alanna Fleisher.

 
The Edible Story is a hybrid catering company and event space where you can host cooking classes from two trained chefs. The young company are now also serving lunch in the bright and airy space.

 
The one thing that separates The Edible Story from other companies is that their team will customize food adventures for you. Personal travels have also influenced the young chefs and they’re open to learning new cultures and cuisines to celebrate your event. Cheng says that “food brings people together and we wanted to bring the ritual of eating to our company.” Clients can choose from seasonal menus so their group can learn how to make something together.

 
The duo met while they were students in George Brown College’s Italian Post-Graduate program and their experience has been one that is circle.. “Brian and I both had the same ideas of food and through our program appreciated that good ingredients could be done simply,” Fleisher says. “The school has been so supportive of our business and has given us opportunities such as being clients to enabling us to present awards to current students,” says Cheng.

 
“The Italian program was most influential in my growth process. I became more confident and realized what my food beliefs were. I think it’s important to define your own style as a chef,” Fleisher says. We hope their story continues to be as delicious as their journey so far.
