D'Arcy has been baking since she could walk – learning to make bread and cookies with her mother. D'Arcy grew up with a love of food, finding solace in the kitchen when things got rough. After graduating from Algonquin College's Baking and Pastry Arts program, D'Arcy moved to England to work and live where she met her life partner. Upon returning to Canada, D'Arcy worked in the local Kingston food industry before being encouraged to start her own business by close friends and family. D'Appetit was launched in January 2017 and has continued to operate as a bespoke bakery catering option for events of all kinds. D'Arcy currently lives in Kingston with her husband and their furbaby, Ajax. They hope to return to the UK within the next few years where D'Arcy would like to continue her cookie business while enjoying life in the England countryside once again.
