About Us

Our Story

We were formally known as the Pastry Chef Guild of Alberta,  the brain-child of Calgary Pastry Chef, Andreas Schwarzer. Chef Schwarzer was looking for a way to bring the Baking & Pastry community together and to celebrate & promote our industry. This all began in 2001.

Today, the Baking & Pastry Arts Association of Alberta is a registered not-for-profit organization hoping to continue the themes of community and celebration through the Pastry Showcase!

The Chocolate Lab

It begins with our passion for chocolate. The finest, freshest ingredients. Created by hand in the tradition of the world’s finest chocolatiers.
But why do we make the entire experience so interesting?
Why do we make it such an adventure?
Because The Chocolate Lab is a very different chocolate experience. From our creations to our locations, The Chocolate Lab brings the adventurous spirit of youth to luxury chocolate.
Chocolate is one of life’s great experiences, so we explore and invent, taking chocolate to new heights, much like the finest chefs in the world create in fine restaurants.
We are experience explorers, pushing beyond the ordinary.
It’s an adventure worth tasting.


Sheraton Eau Clair

Indulge in an enriched getaway at Sheraton Suites Calgary Eau Claire. Our upscale hotel provides enticing amenities including a downtown location near the area's premier destinations. A short walk away, you can host a conference at Calgary TELUS Convention Centre and discover Calgary Tower for enchanting sites of the city, foothills and Rocky Mountains. Afterward, retreat to our all-suite accommodations, where our floor-to-ceiling windows provide excellent views of Bow River and Prince's Island Park.



It is no secret that the key to every great meal is the quality of its ingredients. At Teatro we source those ingredients from local and organic producers whenever possible. For those items that we cannot acquire locally, we seek elsewhere with equal care. These include extra virgin olive oil from owner Dario Berloni’s family olive groves in Italy’s Marche, finishing salt from Italy and Brittany and fine imported cheeses from all over the world.


Hotel Arts

The Hotel Arts story began in 2005 when a team of local investors purchased and transformed an old Holiday Inn in Calgary’s Beltline/Victoria Park. They had a vision to create a different kind of hotel in the city – design-centric, fashion-forward and innovative in its culinary offerings.
Over a decade later, the bold vision of our founders still drives our business. We challenge the ordinary. We innovate. We forge lasting relationships and connect with the local business, arts, culture and tourism communities. And in doing this, something magical has happened — the local community has connected with us.


Calgary Petroleum Club

Rooted in history, the Club is a dynamic place to dine, meet and to connect when it comes to business and personal engagements. With a diverse membership base, we are a world-class facility offering exclusive access to Calgary’s best amenities and services. From corporate events to private parties, we’re home to gourmet food, inspiring leadership and extraordinary service.


Fiasco Gelato

Originally founded as a scoop shop in 2003, James Boettcher acquired Fiasco in 2009, in the midst of a recession and with only $1800 in the bank. He reduced it to one storefront, and re-invented the brand. Soon after, the store was gutted by a fire. The lease renewal, only 6 months later, made it impossible to continue and James spent the the first half of 2010 rethinking business. Finding a garage to make the first few batches, then a 100ft commissary space. His disruptive vision for doing business differently, honesty in craft, and creative innovation of the Consumer Packaged Goods space, has charted a course for Fiasco's business model & led to its success.
