Graham and Kelly’s Story is a bit of an interesting one, and it begins outside of Newfoundland. Graham hails from North Bay, ON and Kelly from Montreal, QC. They met at Algonquin College in Ottawa, ON in the fall of 2008. The two quickly became friends over their ideals and similar dreams for the future.
After the program, not wanting to lose one another, they decided to live together for a year in Ottawa. An unsettling feeling and yearning for adventure came upon them, the two decided to look for a new place to live in close relation to both families. Unsuccessful in finding a place to call home, a crazy, random, and now questioning thought occurred. Why not move out East? Their families thought they were mad, and maybe they are a little. They sold most of what they owned, bought a ’98 Volvo Wagon and a small trailer with bike racks. They filled the newly claimed ‘rocket’ with the remainder of their belongings, along with their cat, and hit the road heading east.
Arriving in Newfoundland with thin wallets and even thinner nerves, they decided to quickly cross the island to meet with the only contact they had, a lovely couple living in Spaniards Bay. A quick two weeks went by spent berry picking, eating jiggs dinner, surviving hurricane Igor, and meeting just about every family member of their new found friends. Deciding to finally start calling Newfoundland their home, they moved to St. John’s to find work. Fast-forward through 4 years of amazing memories to just after they first opened the doors to Nourish Bakery. The newly married couple descended on their gluten-free journey to help the people of Newfoundland. Working tirelessly to recreate the classics and an emphasis on keeping things simple, Graham and Kelly have been able to put their spin on gluten-free.
