“Food is a part of every great thing that we do in life. Food is there for all the important events, and the memories we make around a shared table are the best memories of all” –Chef Corbin
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 is a passionate advocate for charities, and has worked with Canadian Cancer Society, Prostate Cancer Canada, Canadian Heart and Stroke Association, Crossroads International, Emily’s House and Engage & Change. Corbin’s first cookbook, “In Good Company” published by Figure1 is being released the Spring of 2018. “In Good Company” teaches us EASY RECIPES FOR EVERYDAY GATHERINGS and reminds us all of 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 an enjoy life with them over their favorite dishes. The best part of my job is meeting amazing people and getting to know them over a home-cooked meal.”
Corbin lives in Toronto with his wife and three sons.
