Chef Daniel Stubbe
Chef Daniel Stubbe is a sixth generation konditor and owner of Stubbe Chocolates & Pastry in Toronto, Ontario. With over 20 years of continuous operation in the city, Chef Stubbe is a veteran in the gourmet chocolate and pastry industry, and a leader in the Toronto market.
Growing up in Meppen, a small German town, Chef Stubbe spent his formative years playing in the kitchens of his family's konditorei, surrounded by sweets and pastries. Chef Stubbe attended culinary school and apprenticed throughout Germany. It was during this time that he honed his pastry and chocolate-making techniques and built upon the knowledge that had been passed down to him by his father.
Chef Stubbe would soon join his father, who had at this time immigrated to Ottawa, Ontario and opened a shop in the Byward Market. When the time came to strike out on his own, Chef Stubbe headed west to Toronto. His goal was to bring contemporary twists and flair to traditional European and Stubbe family recipes, and offer Torontonians a gourmet chocolate and pastry experience.
Today, Chef Stubbe can be found leading the team at Stubbe Chocolates & Pastry Toronto, greeting visitors from his open concept kitchen, and creating new and innovative sweet treats.
On January 26th, 2018, Chef Stubbe released his signature Verliebt and Verspielt chocolates. The dark and milk chocolates are exclusive to Stubbe Chocolates & Pastry, as they were created by Chef Stubbe when he was selected to participate in the OrNoir Experience.
