Description: "In Good Taste: A Culinary Journey – Following the path to becoming and growing as a chef in a diverse culinary world". Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Anna moved to Toronto with her family when she was six. Anna's family is of Eastern European heritage so baking and cooking has always been at the heart of every family gathering. Anna took her love of cooking from personal passion to professional career when, after achieving a degree in Political Studies from Queen's University and a brief stint working in the banking world, she enrolled in the culinary management program at Johnson & Wales University in Vail, Colorado. Her work adventures ultimately led her to the Niagara region in 1995, where she has been happily settled ever since along with husband Chef Michael Olson and stepdaughter Mika. Recipe development is one of her great accomplishments with six successful cookbook publications to her name including "Back to Baking" released in 2011 and her latest Food Network television program "Bake with Anna Olson".
