Sous Chef, Catering
416-964-1162 x-310 | firstname.lastname@example.org
Kris Rushton is our Catering Sous Chef, a position which supports the Executive Chef in planning, prepping and executing over 800 events annually. Kris spent most of his childhood alongside his mother and grandmother making wine and cooking with his Italian babysitters.
Kris’ culinary education took him across Europe, apprenticing in kitchen in Italy and France while also learning butchery and fish mongering. Returning to Toronto, Kris worked at Le Select Bistro where he honed his skills in French cuisine, then Crush Wine Bar and Scaramouche under the tutelage of renowned chef Keith Froggett.
It wasn’t until Kris spent a few years in Costa Rica catering for a crowd of Hollywood elite that he truly fell in love with the catering aspect of the culinary craft. Developing menus for broad ranges of palettes and working through the logistics of managing varied budgets for events as large as 4,000 guests, was where Kris eventually found his ‘forever home’ with Eatertainment.
