Arron Carley

Canadian Guest Chef 2017, 2018, 2019 | 'The Bruce Hotel' (Stratford)

In 2006 Arron studied at George Brown College in Toronto. After many years in the casual dining scene Arron decided to chase his dream and in 2010 landed a Chef De Partie position with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment as part of the opening team of e11even. To continue his pursuit in 2011 he next achieved a position at Oliver and Bonacini’s Luma as a Sous Chef with Chef Jason Bangerter (Langdon Hall) and Chef Michael Wilson (Luma).

Next on the journey was Noma in Copenhagen, which has held the #1 restaurant spot in the world 4 times. In 2014, at Noma as an intern, he was able to truly understand what it is he wanted to focus his culinary skills on. After Noma, Arron came back to Toronto and landed at Oliver and Bonacini’s Canoe as a Sous Chef under Chef John Horne. Currently Chef Carley is Executive Chef at The Bruce Hotel in Stratford, Ontario.

Looking into our past and understanding our roots as well as looking forward into the undiscovered wilderness of our nation we will forge New Canadian Cuisine.
