Description

Ontario Shores and the Durham College W. Galen Weston Centre for Food warmly welcome you to an interactive evening with celebrity Chef Madison Cowan. Chef Madison Cowan, well known as the winner of Chopped Grand Champion and Iron Chef America's Battle Kale, will share helpful tips as he prepares his favourite dishes and discusses the positive effect that cooking together has on our mental health.

Madison is a hands-on family man, cook, producer and storyteller with roots in London, Jamaica and Detroit. In 2004, after being awarded a four star rating from The Times as executive chef of Ashbells in London’s West End, he established Madison Cowan LLC, a global culinary production company that oversees operations in licensing and consulting, television production and private dining that has reached throughout Africa, Europe, Japan and South America.

Madison’s charitable endeavours include advocating globally on behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association in its quest to cure all dementia related diseases, serving as culinary council member for Food Bank For New York City, a leader in the movement to end hunger and poverty and signing on with First Lady Michelle Obama’s Chefs Move To Schools initiative, which creates partnerships for professional chefs and public schools nationwide with the goal of solving childhood obesity within their communities by collaboratively educating children about food and healthy eating.

He was Food Network’s first ever Chopped Grand Champion and Iron Chef America's Battle Kale winner and currently features on multiple series such as such as Beat Bobby Flay, Guilty Pleasures and Iron Chef Eats.

Madison has catered to jazz legend Lionel Hampton, singer and human rights activist Odetta, actors Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson and Anthony Anderson, rapper and poet Mos Def, fashion icon Donna Karan, playwright Lanford Wilson, former NYC Mayor David Dinkins and former President Bill Clinton.

He credits his mother’s influence as the springboard to his culinary experience: “She made certain I knew my way round the kitchen and would never depend on anyone for a meal. Sage advice I now impart to my own child.”

Dont miss out on this opportunity to come listen and enjoy an evening discussing something that connects us all. We look forward to seeing you there!
