About Aaron Foster:
Aaron credits his mother, Becky Foster, and her restaurant, The Mercantile Cafe, as the beginning of “his love for food” in Port Colborne Ont. He starting cooking there when he was 14-years-old and hasn’t stopped since.
Aaron attended the Canadian Food and Wine Institute at Niagara College in 2001. After graduating, he moved to Toronto under the advice of chef Michael Olson, he trained under head chefs such as Chris Zielinski, Massimo Capra, and Michael Wilson.
In 2008, he moved to Bangkok, Thailand to open RedSky, for Centara Hotels, a chic urban bistro located 55 stories above the Bangkok city skyline. The following year, Aaron won the honour of “Best New Chef in Bangkok” and Red Sky the award of “Best New Restaurant in Bangkok 2009.” The accolades continued in 2010 when Red Sky was honored as “Best Restaurant in Bangkok.”
Currently, Aaron has taken the opportunity at LA’s Italian + Bar to have fun with the menu, aiming to produce high quality food at a great price. He has written the menu so both casual diners and experienced foodies can enjoy. He describes the menu at LA’s as Italian with a twist, using the techniques he’s learned from his travels. His vision for LA’s is not to be just another “Italian Restaurant.”
He describes his cooking by using “quality products, cooked properly, with bold flavour." Using as much local product as he can, seasonally permitted of course. He takes every dish one bite at a time.
“I just want everyone to enjoy food as much as I do.”
