Roger Mooking has earned a reputation as one of Canada’s premier chefs by developing a philosophy built on the perfect execution of globally inspired culinary traditions. As a third-generation restaurateur and chef he began his formal training in the George Brown Culinary Management Program, where he earned Top Student Honours diploma and is now the chair of the Professional Advisory Committee.
Roger continued his training at Epic Dining Room in Toronto’s world-renowned Royal York Hotel, before co-owning and consulting on many food and beverage operations.
He is the host and co-creator of his own internationally broadcast television series, Everyday Exotic. He is also the co-host of Heat Seekers, airing on the Food Network.
He is also the recording artist and creator of Soul Food; a unique food and music project released by Warner Music. For Roger, music and the epicurean world are seamless. One feeds the body, the other the soul; it is all food in all its various forms.
