Taste Matters welcomes host, Chef Myles Chaulk, successful chef and former Eva’s client.
Renowned chef Myles Chaulk is an Event Chef at 10tation Event Catering. At age 16, Myles’ step-father kicked him out of the house and harrowing events brought him to Eva’s Place. There, he noticed the work of a food service staff member. “He came in every day,” says Myles, “… that man fed me every day for years. That was definitely a part of why I kept cooking. Because food is survival.”
Don’t miss Myles as MC at Eva’s Taste Matters. He is living proof that Eva’s transformative support helps young people build brilliant futures free of homelessness.
Taste Matters is pleased to announce special guest, Andre Bhagwandat, Top 2 finalist of Season 6 of CTV’s MASTERCHEF CANADA and and Eva’s supporter.
Andre Bhagwandat recently competed in Season 6 of CTV’s MASTERCHEF CANADA and was a Top 2 finalist. At Taste Matters, Andre will be serving Scallop Frittaz, a winning dish from the show. Andre’s passion for food began in his family’s home country of Jamaica, where his dad ran a successful restaurant. Over the years he has taught himself to elevate and modernize classic Caribbean dishes, dreaming of opening a restaurant together with his dad that blends their two unique styles.
Currently Andre is a full-time hospital housekeeper and a private chef on the weekend. In addition, he is now pursuing opportunities where he can collaborate with other chefs and work on starting his own private dining company. Andre is thrilled to be a part of Taste Matters and the movement to end youth homelessness.
Thank you to Eva’s Taste Matters 2019 Committee Members!
