Stratford Chefs School, Class of 2015 | Chef de Partie, Scaramouche (Toronto)

“During my time at SCS I was told by almost every instructor how staging or working abroad or even just outside of Ontario can benefit a young cook. For me, this theory proved true as I experienced things I never thought possible through 4 jobs/stages outside of Ontario. This is just one aspect in which I found the instructors at SCS really push the students to exit their comfort zones and strive to go further.”
