Our Host

Taste Matters welcomes host, Chef Myles Chaulk, successful chef and former Eva’s client.

Eva’s Taste Matters 2019 - Our Host Chef Myles Chaulk

With over 18 years of experience in the food and hospitality industry, renowned chef Myles Chaulk is the Kitchen Manager at Uncle Betty’s Diner known as the go to place for Grilled Cheese Sandwiches in Toronto. His plethora of experience also includes his work with restaurants such as Moxie’s Grill and Bar, Jack Astor’s Bar and Grill, The County General, and the Bishop Strachan School. He has also trained several of Eva’s residents in his kitchen, helping them acquire essential skills required in the food and hospitality industry.

Myles wasn’t always a great chef (he gave his friends’ food poisoning!). But, he did get introduced to the food industry when he got a job at a diner.

At age 16, Myles got a shock when his step-father kicked him out of the house. He thought, “if I go to jail, at least I’ll have somewhere to sleep.” Harrowing events brought him to Eva’s Place. There, he noticed the work of the 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.

You’ll be inspired!
