Mark McEwan, Owner and Executive Chef
From his early years as Canada’s youngest ever executive chef at Toronto’s upscale Sutton Place Hotel, to his latest endeavor, trendy resto bar Fabbrica, Mark McEwan is never content to rest on his laurels.
McEwan has led the restaurant scene in Toronto for many years. He joins the ranks of the truly innovative with groundbreaking Toronto standards from “North 44” to “Bymark” to the always interesting “ONE”, a staple for the “see and be seen” crowd in Yorkville.
But, it doesn’t stop with dining — in early 2009 he turned his attention to upscale gourmet food and opened McEwans at The Shops at Don Mills, followed by a second gourmet store location at the TD Centre Path in mid-2015.
His first best-selling cookbook “Great Food at Home” added author to his resume. In late 2011, with the help of Jacob Richler, he once again wowed us with “Fabbrica” the cookbook based on the recipes featured in his latest restaurant.
Mark has also added television personality to his long list of talents and is currently the head judge on “Top Chef Canada”. His first show for The Food Network, “The Heat” was a riveting behind the scenes look at North 44, as well as the building of the McEwans grocery store – a ratings winner.
An incredible talent, Mark is one of Canada’s most renowned and well-respected celebrity chefs.
