Chef Mark McEwan

Chef Mark McEwan is widely recognized for his distinctive style of cooking that captures the essence of classical cuisine with nuances of contemporary flavours. He is a leader in the Canadian culinary scene – from his early days as executive chef at Toronto’s upscale Sutton Place to opening ground-breaking Toronto institutions such as North 44, Bymark and ONE Restaurant. The ingredients-driven Chef McEwan then captivated audiences with rustic Italian fare opening three unique Fabbrica Restaurant locations. Influenced by the marketplaces of the world, Chef McEwan operates three gourmet grocery stores offering shoppers fresh ready-made-meals and the best produce available. Chef McEwan continues to elevate Canadian cuisine onto the global stage as head judge on Food Network’s hit series Top Chef, through his bestselling cookbooks and, one dish at a time, in his award-winning restaurants.

Chef Shen Ousmand

Corporate Executive Chef Shen offers an innovative approach to McEwan Catering. Trained in classical French cuisine and North American techniques, Chef Shen joined the McEwan Group team at a young age; honing his skills in the Bymark kitchen. From here, he was promoted to head chef at McEwan’s grocery & catering division where he elevated the gourmet offerings with his global flare. Chef Shen’s creativity and dedication to quality made him the perfect fit to lead the catering team where his seasonal dishes utilize classical French techniques while drawing from his Sri Lankan roots.

“The secret ingredient to any recipe, the added touch to make a dish really shine, is to cook with your heart.” – Chef Shen Ousmand
