Corbin Tomaszeski is a chef with a unique vision: to bring meaning back to the world of food. In every endeavour he has taken up, whether being executive chef of key Toronto restaurants, hotels or through his popular Food Network shows- The Incredible Food Race, Dinner Party Wars, Restaurant Makeover and Restaurant Takeover, Chef Corbin strives to keep the focus on food as a conveyance to shared joy, and away from fussy, rigorous rules.
“We’re so removed from where our food comes from and how to make it properly, because we’ve stopped making time to make food and spend that time with our families. Kids don’t learn how to cook anymore. I learned a lot on our farm as a child, and even though I’m raising 3 boys in the city, we cook. Teaching your kids to cook is an essential life skill, and the time you spend with them teaching them how to cook is never wasted.
Corbin’s first cookbook, “In Good Company” published by Figure1 is now available on Amazon. “In Good Company” teaches us EASY RECIPES FOR EVERYDAY GATHERINGS and reminds us all on what cooking is all about.
“No matter where you go, everyone celebrates with food, and no matter who is hosting you, they are proud to have you sit and enjoy life with them over their favourite dishes. The best part of my job is meeting amazing people and getting to know them over a home-cooked meal.”
In addition to his incredible achievements to date, Chef Corbin has launched a store front and catering company aptly named “Corbin Catering & Foods”. It is a boutique food company that specializes in providing incredible food experiences that include: full-service catering & event planning, an onsite food shop & market, a takeout food program for pick-up or delivery and a private dinner party or chef’s table gathering. No matter the food experience you decide, Chef Corbin and his team pride themselves on exceeding expectations with their delicious food, exemplary service and attention to detail
“From intimate, private dinners to elaborate parties, our goal at Corbin Catering & Foods is to bring family and friends together. Host them in your beautiful home or garden, a chic venue in your neighbourhood or vibrant downtown destination.
We will create a one of a kind experiences with beautiful lasting memories.”
Corbin is a Graduate of the Culinary Arts program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and volunteers for organizations such as Prostate Cancer Canada, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, Emily’s House, Engage and Change and Canadian Cancer Society.
