Chef Ted Corrado joined Drake Hotel Properties as Corporate Executive Chef in 2013. Prior to taking the culinary reins at The Drake, Corrado was Executive Chef at the Royal Ontario Museum’s lauded c5 Restaurant, where he was part of the 2006 launch team as Chef de Cuisine. In its first year, c5 was heralded as one of Toronto Life’s 10 Best New Restaurants, a Top Ten accolade the restaurant held each year that Corrado helmed its kitchen.
Corrado also won Chef of the Year in 2008 from the Compass Group Canada and was named a Top 10 Chef in Toronto for the Gold Medal Plates competitions between 2009 and 2011. Corrado was inducted as a Fellow to the Ontario Hostelry Institute in 2011, a distinction shared by only a handful of Chefs in the province. As a founding member of Crosstown Kitchens, Corrado supports local sustainable initiatives, and works closely with The Stop Community Food Centre. In his role at The Drake, Corrado oversees culinary operations at the iconic Drake Hotel on Queen West, Drake One Fifty in Toronto’s Financial District, the award-winning Drake Devonshire in Prince Edward County, Drake Commissary, a creative culinary hub in Toronto’s emerging Junction Triangle neighbourhood, and the new Drake Mini Bar, The Drake’s downtown homage to the hotel bar, which opened across the hall from Drake One Fifty in May 2018.
Corrado holds a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from York University and a Chef Training certificate from George Brown College.
