Having grown up in a family with diverse tastes, and working at the local farmers markets from an early age, it was only natural to pursue a life and love of food!
My family's enthusiasm for international cuisine encouraged me to learn to prepare all kinds of dishes. Spending a year in Central Europe mainly in Germany, France and Italy, I absorbed a great deal of knowledge for my food repertoire.
When I returned home I attended the Culinary Institute of Canada and graduated with an honors degree in Culinary Arts.
Following my formal education, I was employed at 5 star Inns & Restaurants throughout the United States and Canada.
For those of you familiar with the Food Network, I have competed in local, national & international food competitions and earned various awards.
Along with my chef duties, I have taught gourmet cooking classes and I have over 10 years experience in catering, both privately and for corporate clients.
