My name is Jordan Diniz, I am a young chef; constantly looking for new opportunities to expand my culinary knowledge and further my experience as a chef. My culinary outlook is oriented around creating unique, sustainable, and, of course, delicious meals for all of my customers. Since my youth, I have had a passion for cooking, learning about the subtle nuances of different foods and what can make a meal truly outstanding.

Chef Jordan’s Biography

I’ve wanted to be a Chef for as long as I can remember. As a child I would watch my Grandmother in the kitchen and I was always intrigued with making traditional Goan, Indian dishes in a unique way and using a variety of exotic spices.
In 2016 I went to George Brown College for Culinary Management where I learnt everything from developing a menu, new techniques, what it’s like to run a business in the food industry and the overall fundamentals of what it takes to be a chef. In January of 2018, I started my internship at the Shangri La Hotel in Toronto. It has been providing top of the line, quality service and delicious recipes to the city for about 6 years. 

I graduated from the postgraduate Culinary Arts program at George Brown College in April 2019. This program allowed me to spend 4 months in Italy to truly learn as much as possible about their food and overall culture. The program is in partnership with ALMA, the world-famous Scuola Internazionale di Cucina Italiana, near Parma, which is one of Italy’s finest culinary schools. I also got the opportunity to stage in two Michelin starred restaurants in two different parts of Italy. The opportunity to use the vineyards and local markets of Italy as a blank canvas for my art was an incredible and exciting experience.
