Chef Avaughn began cooking in 1992. He was a student in high school and spent his evenings in a Cleveland, Ohio, hotel, where he met a number of talented young chefs. With these interactions, he developed a passion for fresh ingredients and classical preparation.  

Over the next 10 years, Chef Avaughn worked in various hotels and privately owned upscale restaurants. He was able to learn and master the art of hospitality and culinary arts. In 2004 he was hired as Executive Sous Chef for Maggianos Little Italy, where he realized that he had a real talent for creating indulgent comfort food.

Chef Avaughn takes great joy in the emotional connection created when providing great food, drinks and service. Now in the Toronto area, Chef Avaughn has worked in some of the most high volume and respected restaurants in North America. Armed with 24 years of experience and confidence, he has been at the helm of such kitchens as The Amsterdam Brewhouse and Real Sports Bar.

With a focus on fresh ingredients, Avaughn has set out to create very personal menus and experiences for families, dinner parties and brand new restaurant start-ups.

Chef Avaughn has liability insurance until June 30th 2017 so allow him to make your next event a memorable one by calling us.
