Cooking is a calling for Anthony.

Growing up in a food-conscious home, it was inevitable that Anthony would answer the call and start honing his craft early. First at Fanshawe College's apprentice program, then working to earn his Red Seal Certification before the age of 23. He travelled across the pond, working in the world-renowned Oxo Tower Brasserie and Restaurant in London, England. Understanding that eating is the key to good cooking, Anthony has followed his tastebuds to many parts of Europe, Asia and the US, discovering new flavours, ingredients and techniques to incorporate in his distinctive and imaginative cuisine.

In 2013, he earned a James Beard scholarship and returned to Canada to attend The Art Institute of Vancouver’s Hospitality and Restaurant Business Management program. Excelling in both the kitchen and front of house, Anthony has earned a Merit Award and made both the President’s List and the Dean’s List at the Institute.
