BreadheadI’m Lucy. I’ve been a baker and pastry chef for almost a decade working in some of Canada’s top restaurants and cafes. I started baking because I like eating. I wanted to show my friends and family I love them by creating something sweet for them. When all the hospitality business’ shut down in March, I created Breadhead. I’ve always loved the idea of making new things, perfecting those things, and in turn, having YOU taste those things.

Armando AperitivoOur aperitifs are made in (very) small batches by me, Sam Wilson. While travelling across Italy, I fell in love with the aperitivo tradition and the wide worlds of vermouth and amari. Leaving a career in the craft beer industry, I dedicated myself to learning the craft of producing delicious and natural aperitifs. With Armando, I’m inspired by the classic aperitifs served at Italian family dinners, like those hosted by my grandfather - who the company is named after.
