Breaking bread, building memories
Paul’s passion for the kitchen began humbly as a young teenager working in a local Bar & Grill.
After earning his Red Seal, he started his career at some of downtown Toronto’s favourite restaurants where he became well versed in French cuisine and discovered a passion for Asian fusion.
Over the next 20 years, Paul refined his culinary skills as an integral part of the kitchens at some of Muskoka’s premier resorts before moving on to Executive Chef roles at prestigious clubs, golf courses and restaurants throughout Southern Ontario.
Most recently Paul has fallen in love with the art of grilling and creating gourmet family style recipes using authentic local favourites.
His culinary range and expertise make him an expert at creating unique, delicious menus for groups of any size.
Whether a wedding, banquet or small intimate gathering with friends and family, Paul loves to help create gourmet meals for every food and taste.
For me, cooking is...
A way of life I could never live without.
I learned to cook at...
You never stop learning how to cook.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Without a doubt Anthony Bourdain.
A cooking secret...
Patience. The most important ingredient.
