“No one is born a great cook, one learns by doing.” — Julia Child


We’d be lying if we said we hadn’t burnt a cake, however, young Alex Czajka has achieved this feat.


Young Master Chef: Alex Czajka


This 14-year-old chef has already found great passion in cooking. He started when he was a mere 12-year-old. At that time, he was studying in grade eight, and he baked almost daily. His inspiration and desire for cooking originated from his grandmother. She was a great cook, and her experiences with Alex hugely motivated him



As he says, “When I was approximately six or seven, my grandma and I would always bake a carrot cake, cookies — and especially cream puffs and pies.”

Alex Czajka also finds cooking to be a way to remember and honor his grandmother’s talent after her passing away. It is inspiring to see the young prodigy honoring his grandmother’s memory in such a loving yet straightforward manner. He intends to pass on this talent through the family as he says, “I’ll pass it on for her. I’ll make sure her that her grandchildren and great-grandchildren can bake.”

He’s only in Grade 8, but Edmontonian Alex Czajka has already discovered his passion – in the kitchen. He bakes almost every day. “When I was approximately six or seven, my grandma and I would always bake a carrot cake, cookies – and especially cream puffs and pies,” Alex said in an interview with Global News.

Alex intends to concentrate on his academics while pursuing his passion. He also believes that one day his love will pave the way for his career. We hope that the young chef continues to cook mouth-watering desserts and dishes.
