Bryan Steele

Senior Cookery Instructor | Canadian Guest Chef 2017

Since 1989, Bryan has been Chef de Cuisine at The (Old) Prune. After earning a degree in chemistry from Queen’s University, Bryan turned his talents to cooking. He trained at Toronto’s George Brown College and completed his apprenticeship in Toronto restaurants, working with Michael Stadtlander along the way; he then spent four years working extensively in restaurants in Italy and Germany. His experience with Jean-Georges Vongerichten at Jo-Jo’s and with Wayne Nish at March Restaurant in New York has brought American urban touches to Bryan’s creations. The Prune’s cuisine reflects a distinctive international cooking style that is worldly and sophisticated yet accessible. As senior cookery instructor at the Stratford Chefs School, Bryan guides student chefs in cuisine, helping to develop their cooking skills and their palates. Bryan is married to a chef, Tracy Day, and they have two daughters, Hannah and Sophia.
