Jasmine Baker began creating magical moments at a very young age. From Easy Bake Oven-catered parties and gala events in Barbie’s dream house to working with the management teams of Toronto’s trendiest night clubs and restaurants, Jasmine has always had a passion for everyday elegance and entertaining. Currently the Director of Special Events at Toronto’s ultra-trendy Drake Hotel, Jasmine Baker has helped launch and nurture the success of numerous Toronto hot-spots, including Gypsy Co-op, Shark City and Lobby. In her role as event planner, she has played host to avant garde media events, arts and cultural fundraisers and International Film Festival parties. She has created events ranging from private dinner parties, weddings, and movie and CD launches, to dramatic, large-scale productions such as a Moulin Rouge-themed gala in which costumed performers were lowered from the ceiling to the amazement of guests.
As the Crash My Kitchen expert on creating unique and stylish mealtime moments, she is motivated by her love of making guests happy through her natural eye for detail and ability to create atmosphere. With her effervescent charm and boundless energy, she is able to help people add elements of flare to everyday living.
Baker studied Culinary Arts at George Brown College in Toronto before touring Italy and the Alps for six months, absorbing the culinary richness of Europe. Her love of food and learning continues to this day as she studies wine appreciation when she’s not creating spectacular parties.
