One doesn’t usually think of “lawyer” and “baker” as shared skillsets, but Toronto human rights lawyer Corey Shefman is proving that otherwise.
Shefman is an associate at Olthuis Kleer Townshend LLP who is putting his amateur baking skills to the test as a contestant on the new CBC television program The Great Canadian Baking Show, which premiered Nov. 1.
“I mostly applied because I thought it would just be a fun story to tell. I never thought I would actually be picked as one of the top 10 amateur home bakers in Canada,” he says, explaining that contestants had to be put through an application and audition process. “I was really floored when they asked me to be on the show.”
