Corey started baking at a very early age, and learned while watching his mom. He continues to draw inspiration from the traditional Jewish baking his family has passed down. "I have great memories of Jewish holiday baking," says Corey. He loves making things for his partner Keith and his family, and is ecstatic to be part of The Great Canadian Baking Show. "This sort of thing happens to other people – I want to enjoy and savour every moment!"
