About Alexa "Lex" Clark:

From farm to fryer, front-of-house to back-of-house, Lex has always been obsessed with flavour and aroma.

Her culinary journey started in the family vegetable stand, then expanded to working at The Daily Grind, a family spice & coffee shop and the Market Basket all in the Saint John City Market. She honed her skills in restaurant and catering kitchens, both in the back and front of the house. Lex's passion for food led her to explore restaurants as a customer, connoisseur, critic, culinary judge and eventually a best-selling author of CheapEats Restaurant Guides for Toronto and Ottawa.

Lex's love for flavours extended beyond the pages of her guides. She co-founded the Secret Pickle Supper Club, a widely celebrated underground supper club in Toronto, with Chef Matt Kantor.

Then continued to cook, develop her own recipes, and create spice blends throughout her culinary adventures. Lex's food journey, popular photos, and many of her own recipes are chronicled at her blog - unsweetened.ca

With a passion for giving back, Lex has collaborated with numerous organizations, including Conquer Covid19, Second Harvest, and Daily Bread Food Bank. During the pandemic, she played a pivotal role in addressing PPE shortages in Canada by leading the social media team for Conquer Covid19. Lex has also co-chaired Toronto Taste, the largest fundraiser supporting Second Harvest, and co-founded HoHoTO, a successful charity event raising funds for Daily Bread Food Bank. She's also often invited to host, MC and judge at food producer events and culinary competitions. 

Lex's path took a turn when she suffered a serious concussion in 2017, leading her on a journey of recovery that still continues 6 years later. With determination and resilience, Lex adapted to her new reality. She shifted from consulting to launch From Lex's Pantry. In addition, she started some informal art therapy. Her original art cards, born from these therapeutic sessions, have found a place in the world through her Redbubble store and a selection are also available here: From Lex's Pantry
