I was born in the Okanagan, and moved to Ontario at a fairly young age. I have great memories of my grandpa standing behind the grill on a hot summer day, surrounded by orchards and mountains. His favourite meal was a mixed grill…

‘Squimps*’: Exceptional Alternatives
February 15, 2019

It’s difficult to talk about your teachers without sounding like a colossal seat-smoocher, but I’m going to risk it. One of the things I really love about working with our chef instructors is the amount of effort all of them put into making each dinner exceptional for every guest. ..
