ENSO Granola: Embracing Zen-Inspired Uniqueness

ENSŌ (円相), in Japanese Buddhism, means to free your mind and create freely. We interpret its meaning as embracing imperfection and being your best self in the present moment. With the onset of COVID-19, Toronto's embrace of homemade baked goods marked the beginning of our home-based granola venture.

Our granola represents our current finest, but our commitment does not end here. We're on a journey to refine and reach perfection by expanding our offerings to create more delightful and nourishing food.

Commercial granola often falls short. They lack the perfect crunch, are too dry, or carrying an unwelcome aftertaste. It might also be loaded with excess sugar and undisclosed ingredients. Leveraging our team’s culinary expertise, we have addressed these concerns by crafting granolas that's simple, delightful, and it feels like homemade.

Chasing Dreams Through Cooking

Hi, I’m Ethan! Formerly worked in banking, consulting, marketing, and public relations. Throughout that time, cooking has always been my passion. I love the tangible and sensory experience food brings. In 2018, I left my desk job to pursued my culinary passion at George Brown College. I interned at one of Toronto’s high end restaurant - Canoe.  By late 2022, post-CoVID, I launched ENSO. Fusing my fine dining expertise, I aim to deliver exceptional food, and in doing so, validates my dedication and passion. That is my story.
