Get to know me better
A lover of artist foods and desserts
Growing up with my family that shared the same passion, at the very young age, I fell in love with the kitchen watching my father who was Pastry Chef in younger years.
I trained at Sir Sanford Fleming in Culinary Management while finishing a duel co-op culinary apprenticeship.
Coming from a long family line of artist and chefs, I like that I can put my own artistic and colorful ideas into a dish.
I mostly enjoy dinner parties where I can interact with clients and their families, cocktail parties of all sizes, the big plated wedding receptions to intimate private dinners.
In my spare time I take advantage ice fishing, skiing, music and outdoor sports.
For me, cooking is...
like painting a canvas with bright mediums and hues. The flavors is what inspires the audience to pay close attention.
I learned to cook at...
many restaurants and catering businesses across the city, training under various chefs from whom I have learned extensive skills in my career.
A role model in the kitchen is...
without a doubt it would have to first be my father, Easton Hamilton ,Stefan Howard and Tony Loschiavo without them I would not be where i am today.
A cooking secret...
is being real and honest. Cook from the heart and with passion.
