Josh Boros Bio
Joshua Paul Boros - I was born on August 27th 1982 at Newmarket General Hospital. I grew up in the town of Mattawa in Northern Ontario where my days were filled with playing sports like hockey and baseball, working on my parent’s farm and various outdoor activities like motorsports or fishing. I attended FJ McElligot Secondary School where I excelled in academics, graduating with top honours in my class. I also took part in several after school activities including theater arts, basketball, baseball and soccer.
I moved to the area after being accepted at Wilfred Laurier University where I studied North American Prehistoric Archaeology. After finishing at Laurier, I started working in kitchens around the area learning what would eventually become my trade. I started out as a dishwasher and began learning through observation, trial and error. Over the past 7 years I have excelled my way through several of the top kitchens, working and learning from some of the best chefs in the area.
Much of my philosophies as a chef come from my farming background. I strongly believe in the concept of “from the farm to the table” and try to support the 100 mile diet whenever possible. Food is often the cord that runs through our lives connecting people to each other and to moments in time. The memory of a meal shared amongst good friends and family often has more impact on our overall pleasure when sitting down at a restaurant then any other aspect of the service. For this reason we try to recreate that sensation with every plate we serve.
