Zach Keeshig is the head chef and owner of Naagan, a pop-up restaurant at the Owen Sound Farmer’s Market.
Born and raised in Owen Sound, he knew he wanted to become a chef at the tender age of 17, after a part-time job in a restaurant. He went on to study at Georgian College for Culinary Arts, then did an apprenticeship under Chef Tim Johnston. Continuing to build on his culinary education, he went on to work in various restaurants across Ontario with many of the top chefs in Canada.
His time in the kitchen of places like Michael Stadtländer’s Eigensinn Farm, The Restaurant at Pearl Morissette, and Langdon Hall has helped him fuse his Ojibwa cuisine with modern culinary techniques and ingredients. And he does just that with his Naagan dining experience.
