Get to know me better
innovative and creative professional chef with focus on local and sustainable food, Cordon Bleu trained with over 18 years experience
I am a Canadian based chef who trained at Le Cordon Bleu (cuisine and patisserie) in London, England. I have over 15 years of experience both nationally and internationally including owning my own restaurant, and working as Head Chef and Sous-Chef in various restaurants as well as completing stages in 2 Michelin starred restaurants including most recently Relae in Copenhagen, Denmark. I am fascinated by both the art and technique that goes into creating food. I am not only interested in the cooking process but the history of food and its societal/cultural roles, the evolution of a dish, the geography of sourced ingredients, and science literature around food and its by-products. I'm adaptable, hardworking and very keen to learn and am working hard to develop sustainable food practices. My most recent experience in the kitchen as a Sous-Chef at Foxy restaurant in Montreal, QC gave me an indepth exposure to the quebecois food scene as well as multiple contacts for locally sourced products. I have a deep lifelong passion for food and look forward to sharing my love of cooking with others.
