A growing global lifestyle brand promoting passionate and inspired living through topics such as travel, food and style, Jackie Kai Ellis is about authentic storytelling and connections.

After running a thriving design company she set off to Paris to pursue her life-long love of baking. She studied at Paris’ École to open Beaucoup Bakery & Café. Combining the comforting North American baking she grew up with, her Asian heritage and the delicate art of French pastry making, Beaucoup was an immediate success and continues to impress visitors from
around the world.

A lifestyle entrepreneur at heart, Jackie has taken her enthusiasm for design, culinary arts, writing and education, and turned her talents to a number of other projects. She leads intimate groups on trips to the very best Parisian pâtisseries and chocolate shops
through The Paris Tours, sharing her inspiration for Beaucoup Bakery.

With a serious interest in food, fashion and travel, Jackie covers a variety of lifestyle topics that have been published in several print and online outlets. Her writing has been featured in Montecristo Magazine, Flavours Magazine, Vitamin Daily and Anthology Magazine, and she is a regular contributor to The Vancouver Sun and FoodNetwork.ca.

Jackie has been named one of Western Living magazine’s Top Culinary Artist of the Year at the Mayor’s Arts Awards, and
a culinary council member for Whole Foods Market. She has represented a variety of brands in the media, including Kim Crawford
Wines, Nordstrom, Valrhona, and Icebreaker Merino Wool.

Jackie is well-travelled and has been featured in newspapers and publications across North America as well as being a regularly featured guest on CTV British Columbia.
