I have a mixed bag of tricks, I have a strong love for South East Asian, Chinese, Korean and Japanese inspired dishes but can also turn on a dime to Classic French or Italian. I’m well versed in Vegan and Vegetarian and gluten free alternatives. Oh, and I can also make dessert.
Graduate of Ottawa’s Algonquin College Culinary Management program. Was appointed Executive Chef of Biagios Italian Kitchen after Culinary School and from there moved to Vegan restaurant Zen Kitchen. Represented Zen Kitchen at Ottawa’s annual Gold Medal Plates Competition placing Silver along Side Excecutive Chef & Owner Caroline Ishi. I moved on to work beside Top Chef Canada Season 2 Finalist & Top Chef Canada All-Stars Johnathon Korecki at Sidedoor Contemporary Kitchen & Bar. Representing ar Ottawa’s Gold Medal Plates Competition once again finishing with Silver and Bronze respectively. It was here I found my love for South East Asian Cuisine / Chinese cooking techniques. I moved to Toronto and found myself at Head Chef and Owner Scott Vivian’s BEAST Restaurant. Whole animal butchery, local farmers and forging of wild ingredients became second nature while learning what it takes to run a successful restaurant in a major city. In 2017 my wife and I opened our own private dining and catering company and have been building it ever since!
Fabulous chef for any occasion. Highly recommend it. We had Tony come to the chalet and prepare a 7 course meal. Amazing evening, looking forward to doing it again soon. Great times.
Tony and Lauren were amazing. Anthony catered a private dinner for my moms 65th birthday. On short notice they were able to come through with a delicious and memorable evening for our entire family. Both were incredible to work with. I would highly recommend.
