Arlene has honed her craft as a baker inspired first by years at the hip of her mum who was a brilliant home baker. Years of testing (and tasting) a myriad of recipes have led her to become a trusted baking resource for Film and Television productions across Toronto, having the honour of baking for Guillermo del Toro, Carla Gugino, Jonathan Frakes, Paul Austerberry, Star Trek Discovery, KILLJOYS, and The Expanse to name a few.
Dubbed the "Princess of Pie" by CBC, Arlene has appeared as a CBC Life video personality and article contributor to the national broadcaster. Her personal style of baking can be described as Elevated Comfort, with influences from fine art, graphic design, and architecture.
Deadly Ground Coffee canada
Deadly Grounds Coffee is the ONLY hearse based coffee company in North America. For our founder; Tom Lialios, working in television and film production for over 20 years – coffee was a necessity in keeping him going during the long hours of work. But it was always more than just a beverage. Any coffee break with a close friend or co-worker is an opportunity to catch up on life, share some laughs, or work out life’s problems. Everyone has at least one good coffee buddy. Whether it’s with the mornings first brew, a quick mid-day drive thru run, or after dinner shared with someone special – it’s amazing all that could get worked out over a steaming cup o’ Joe.
Since coffee time is such an enjoyable break in the midst of our hectic day it soon became a quest to find the “perfect cup”. While there’s never a shortage of coffee places, not all java brings the magic. Rare is the coffee experience that’s truly to die for. In the search for coffee nirvana Tom thought it would be easier to just make his own. While it turned out not to be easier it sure as hell was a lot of fun. He found a talented local roaster that believed in quality over quantity and with a name that no one could forget – Deadly Grounds Coffee was born. Since the goal was to make coffee to die for – choosing a hearse as our company car seemed like the right choice. It’s become the perfect ambassador on our travels, a great mobile coffee cart that can grind & brew coffee at 55mph, and people tend to get out of its way.
