About Chef Steve Gonzalez:
Chef Steve Gonzalez is a first-generation Canadian with Colombian parents. He prides himself on being innovative and putting modern spins on classic Latino food. Steve has been in the restaurant business for 20 years.  He has cooked in Spain, Hong Kong, and Miami. He is currently chef de cuisine at Claudio Aprile’s latest venture, Origin, a Toronto culinary hotspot. Previously, he was chef de cuisine at Colborne Lane and sous chef at Sassafraz, to name a few.

Recently, Origin was ranked the number one new Toronto restaurant – a fact that no doubt  is due to Steve’s administration behind an open kitchen and brilliantly executed dishes.
