Growing up in Romania, Alina was a chess champion, playing competitively from age four. Alina's passion for baking also goes back to her childhood, sparked by watching her mother and grandmother in the kitchen. She now applies that knowledge and skill to her own baking, as she strives to make delicious desserts with maximum dramatic impact. Now settled in Toronto with her fiancé, Michal, Alina thinks of herself as a "rogue Tooth Fairy" who pairs her love of baking with an equal passion for dentistry and orthodontics.
