About me

The Tooth Fairy gone rogue

My name is Alina and I am an avid home baker. After 12 years in orthodontics, I took a hiatus from clinical practice to compete on Season 5 of The Great Canadian Baking Show! (Check it out on Netflix Canada)
Now, I spend my time baking more than ever, creating new and delicious recipes and sharing them on here, on my Instagram page @luxe.baker, various TV programs, and through my nation-wide baking column "Baking with Alina".

In my downtime, I love to play video games, travel, and spend time with family in Blue Mountain where we have two goats and two alpacas!
