Mark McEwan

Chef & Owner, The McEwan Group & Food Network Canada’s Top Chef Canada

From his early years as Canada’s youngest-ever executive chef at Toronto’s upscale Sutton Place Hotel, to his latest endeavor at trendy resto bar Fabbrica, McEwan has led the restaurant scene in Toronto for many years with groundbreaking standards from North 44 and Bymark to ONE in Yorkville. With Fabbrica he has captivated customers with rustic Italian fare in a warm, yet contemporary setting. In early 2009 he turned his attention to upscale gourmet food and opened McEwans at The Shops at Don Mills: a jewel box of a grocery store that caters to foodies and chefs alike. His best-selling cookbook Great Food at Home added author to his resume. In late 2011 Mark, with the help of fellow judge Jacob Richler, published Fabbrica; the cookbook based on recipes featured in his latest restaurant. Mark is currently head judge on Top Chef Canada and has a cookware line by Fresco, which is sold across Canada.
