About Vanessa Yeung:

As a graduate of the Stratford Chef’s School and honoured with the award for Culinary Excellence, Vanessa honed her skills with an apprenticeship at fine dining restaurant Scaramouche. After a brief stint in food manufacturing, Vanessa was the private chef to former NHL goaltender Ed Belfour. Vanessa then moved on to starting her own catering company - Aphrodite Cooks. She also began teaching cooking class with a unique twist. The Singles Supper Club was created by Vanessa as a way for singles to meet one another in a cooking class environment. Vanessa’s journey with food and cooking will be a constant evolution but she will always recognize the power that it has to bring people together.
