Jackie Kai Ellis on stepping into her power
Jackie Kai Ellis first broke out in the local food scene when she opened Beaucoup Bakery in 2012. The tiny 16-seat bakery on Fir St. quickly gained recognition for it’s French pasty and was dubbed one of the best bakeries in the city.
In 2017, Kai Ellis sold Beaucoup and a year later release her incredibly open and honest memoir The Measure of my Powers: A Memoir of Food, Misery and Paris through Appetite Randomhouse.
In the memoir, Kai Ellis is unapologetically honest about her former marriage, struggling with depression and how she used her passion for baking as a catalyst for creating a new life for herself.
We met up with Kai Ellis at Beaucoup Bakery to chat about the book and what she is up to in her life after Beaucoup. This interview was originally intended to be turned into an article, but there is something more powerful in hearing Kai Ellis speak for herself.
