September is childhood cancer awareness month and this year, Toronto Market Co. is proud to partner with Marky's Sweet Treats to help raise funds for pediatric blood cancer research. The new #bakebook outlines unique recipes from Toronto’s most notable chefs and bakers.
All proceeds from the bakebook will be donated to the Owen Weinstein Fund at Sick Kids Hospital. TorontoMarket.Co will feature Marky’s Sweet Treats one-of-a-kind virtual #bakebook during the month of September. This #bakebook includes a collection of decadent and delicious baking only recipes from some of the best known chefs, bakers and restaurants.
The bakebook features recipes from 85+ local bakers and restauranteurs from well-known names like The Rolling Pin, Fidel Gastro, Amy Olsen, Bobette and Belle, Marc McEwan and Susur Lee to name a few. Whether you are experienced in the kitchen or just learning, delicious recipes like blackberry macarons, warm skillet brownies, carrot cake and homemade oreos make this downloadable bakebook a kitchen must!
Marky’s Sweet Treats was founded by Heidi Czutrin and Caryn Levyn in 2017 to raise awareness and funds for Sick Kids after Heidi’s son Marky was diagnosed with cancer at 3 years old. What started as a yearly neighbourhood bake sale has now shifted to a digital downloadable bakebook featuring some of the best local chefs, restaurants and influencers. Czutrin says, “ A neighbourhood bakesale seemed like an obstacle with covid but we now have an opportunity to raise even more awareness and funds with their new downloadable bakebook”.
Now a 7 year old, Marky is a 3 time cancer survivor of a rare and aggressive form of leukemia. He was fortunate to be eligible for the CAR-T procedure (only the 14th child at Sick Kids to receive this treatment in Canada) in 2019 which offered a life saving treatment option. It is due to the advancements in research for pediatric blood cancers that treatment was available for Marky and today he is a happy, healthy and thriving little boy entering grade 2.
