RB: What is the Midnight Snack Co.?
TMSC: The Midnight Snack Co. is a catering and snack company in Toronto that focuses on small-batch production for special events. MSC works directly with clients to create the perfect menu for their special day. We do anything from cake or donut deliveries to hungry customers, to full weddings, party favours, corporate events, and more.
TMSC: I began the Midnight Snack Co. on a bit of a whim. I had left my position as pastry chef for Jamie Kennedy a few months prior and was beginning to think of ways to involve myself in the food community without working in a kitchen at a restaurant again. I began making snacks for my friend's bar Pharmacy Bar, and then got accepted to Food Networks Donut Showdown, and that's when I started to realize that this could actually work. I ended up winning the show and had a bit of money to invest in the business, as they say... the rest is history.
The first thing I cooked was definitely dinner for me and my family growing up. From about age 10 and onwards my mom would call me from work every day with instructions, and talk me through preparing dinner every night. I still don't know why my older sister wasn't in charge, truthfully I loved it, I loved being in charge of dinner, and the look on my mom's face when she came home from work and everything was ready for her.
TMSC: Fresh and Dried Edible Flowers, Seashore Honey, Beautiful Sprouts.
I really love working with beautiful things, I always want to be able to work with fresh flowers, amazing honey, and tender shoot and sprouts.
TMSC: My favourite project so far has got to be the launch for Midnight Snack Co. at the Junction City Music Hall. I got to come up with a menu that captured so much nostalgia and light-hearted fun! I had a make-your-own ice cream sandwich bar, a pickle station, fresh potato chip display, donuts everywhere, I branded Midnight Snack Co. pizza boxes and had a late-night pizza party at midnight, a three-tiered birthday cake, as well as take-home chocolates that matched the business cards. It was silly and fun, everyone had a huge smile on their face.
RB: Please let our guests know what they can expect from you at ReBash!
TMSC: At ReBash I will be bringing along some of our famous donuts to snack on, as well as some retail goodies that serve as samples for take-home gifts. Feel free to come say hi and we can snack on donuts and talk about your bash.
