2018 FINALIST // Chef Michael Ellis (@mike.ellis.91) // Runner-up at the Calgary Regional Heat// Current: Sous Chef @calgarywinterclub 🇨🇦🍽 . . When did you know the chef life was for you? “In high school, I worked as a dishwasher and prep cook at a couple of local diners and Boston Pizza in my home town of Tecumseh, Ontario. After high school, at the age of 18, I moved across the country to Banff, Alberta with a few friends. Through the advancements I made working in restaurants there, I knew the “chef life” was for me. Two years later, I began my cook apprenticeship at SAIT.” . . 📷 Footage taken at @sait at the May Regional Heats.
2018 FINALIST // Chef Michael Roszell (@michael21roszell) //Vancouver Regional Heat// Current: Chef de Partie @peartreeburnaby 🇨🇦🍽 . . When did know you wanted to be a chef? I was 18, and funny enough I based it on coin toss between becoming a chef or conservation officer. I love the fact that cooking uses all five senses, so when I cook, I’m at my best because it requires total focus, yet I find it relaxing - sort of my meditation.
