After several years of globetrotting and working at resorts and hotels, Chef Bo Hons returned to Maryland, his home state, to work with Sheraton Hotels. An opportunity presented itself as a lead baker/trainer in a new bread company franchise which Hons jumped at eventually landing him in Florida. Then, love struck, so he took a leap of faith and traded the tropics for snow and a life with his now-wife Merri in Calgary. Together, they’ve opened Wolfbay Café. Known for award-winning cheesecakes and intricate, sculpted cake art, Hons has created a veritable local cake craze. An unexpected twist of winning the Food Network’s Big Bake Holiday’s season one competition has only increased Wolfbay’s popularity.
