Vancouver – Baking professionals across Canada now have another reason to come to Vancouver for Bakery Showcase in May. Bruno Feldeisen, world-renowned chef and judge on CBC’s Great Canadian Baking Show, will be our very special guest at the show. Chef Bruno will help judge our Mother’s Day Celebration Student Cake-Decorating Competition, sponsored by Dawn Foods, and sign copies of his book, Baking with Bruno, at the Baking Association of Canada booth.

Bruno Feldeisen was born in the small town of Clermont-Ferrand, France. He began his career as an apprentice at one of France’s most renowned chocolate shops in Moulins: Les Palets d’Or. He graduated from his apprenticeship with an almost-perfect score.

After working as a chocolatier at Hotel de Paris in Monaco under the leadership of Chef Alain Ducasse, Bruno moved to the United States in 1988, working in a number of prestigious restaurants and hotels in California such as Patina and the Highlands Inn.

In 1994, he became the executive pastry chef at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York. Bruno’s culinary journey continued when opened Soléa, an American-French restaurant in San Francisco. He later became a pastry chef instructor at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts in Vancouver and the executive pastry chef at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver. Recently, Bruno was leading the kitchen of the Semiahmoo Resort in northern Washington State, making the place a foodie destination to the delight of the Seattle crowd.


Feldeisen was named one of the Top 10 Pastry Chefs in America by Chocolatier Magazine two years in a row and has been nominated twice for the James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef. His delicious works have appeared in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Gourmet Magazine, Bon Appetit Magazine and New York Magazine.

Bruno is a passionate and energetic chef, known for crafting unique cooking experiences. A supporter of the local food movement, he’s committed to food sustainability and supports ethical farming and fishing. Bruno is also a committed supporter of many not-for-profit organizations like Anxiety Canada, Growing Chefs, B.C. Cancer Society, and B.C. Kidney Foundation, among others.

A cookbook author, Bruno released Baking with Bruno in 2020 and is working on his second book The Bacon, Butter, Bourbon & Chocolate Cookbook to be published in late 2023.

An alumna of the Great Canadian Baking Show, Zoya Thawer, a finalist on season 6 of the show, will join Bakery Showcase in a conversation with editor Colleen Cross.
