Andrew J Barrett
Hello! Let me introduce myself, I am Andrew Barrett. I studied culinary arts at Humber College and graduated the Chef de Cuisine apprenticeship program with honors. I then trained for six years with Chef Robert Orsi from Leon, France who cooked for the Queen. I then felt I was ready for my own adventures.
The first stop was Vancouver, Canada – a nice little playground for fresh local food and a wide array of fish and seafood. Next came the Grand Cayman Islands, nestled in the Caribbean Islands 90 miles from Miami, the adventure had just begun. I was young and ambitious, and the world is a vast place with so many places to explore I thought why not? Soon I boarded a plane for Australia where I cooked and toured around for a fantastic year then headed to New Zealand for yet another great experience!
After that, I thought to myself, it’s time for some R and R, and I jumped on the next plane for a few lovely months in Thailand. My taste buds exploded with intrigue for the flavours and spices in this tropical paradise. While over there I continued on to India and Nepal for a short trek in the Himalayas, which were indescribable! This was one of the three world tours that I have journeyed on.
I have also worked in Spain and Great Britain. Travelling has enabled me to keep an open mind about the world and the wide variety of cultures on this beautiful planet.
