We Grew a Chef!

Thursday, January 18, 2018

When Executive Chef Katherine Puzara went on maternity leave last month (welcome baby Callum!!) we knew there'd be big shoes to fill (the non-slip kind of course). After running our promising candidate through a series of multi-disciplinary challenges (aka. cooking with kids), we were thrilled to welcome a new member to our team, Chef Ryan Wishak!

Ryan has always had a passion for food and entertaining. He feels cooking allows him to express his artistic side and bring joy to others through his food. He is a Fanshawe culinary management graduate with 15 years of experience in the industry. Ryan is classically trained in Italian cuisine and has been teaching at Fanshawe for the past 4 years. With his passion for food and background in education he is right at home with the Growing Chefs team.
