Kids Cooking Series with Chris Brown
Kids Cooking Series presented by Burnbrae Farms
Chris Brown began his culinary career in some of Toronto’s finest dining establishments including, Splendido and Avalon. Chris’s desire to further his understanding of the powerful relationship between food, culture and community led him to travel throughout Europe for five years, cooking in Michelin Starred restaurants in Italy and France.
Inspired by the calibre of artisanal gastronomy he experienced abroad, Chris returned to Toronto and took the helm as Executive Chef at Perigee, touted as one of Toronto’s top restaurants.
In 2010, Chris’s passion for cooking and his determination to fight hunger at a grassroots level led him to establish catering operations at The Stop Community Food Centre, one of Toronto’s largest not-for-profit food organizations. This venture ultimately served as the platform from which Chris launched his successful catering operation, Citizen Catering.
With Citizen flourishing, Chris once again partnered with Nick Saul (of Community Food Centre’s Canada) to create Chefs for Change, which unites Canada’s top chefs in a spectacular dinner series, raising awareness and money to fight hunger in our country.
Partnering with long-time friend, Grant van Gameren, in 2017, Chris created an elevated and unparalleled catering experience in Toronto with new catering company, Victor Dries.
