Hailing all the way from Swanage, England, Chef Oli Harding has elevated his skill through years of experience in the hospitality industry. He has been sous-chef to Michelin-star chefs around the UK, including Michael Caines, Chris Eden, and Hell’s Kitchen prodigy Chris Wheeler. He’s cooked for some of Europe’s most highly acclaimed establishments (including Marina Villa Hotel in
Fowey and Stoke Park Golf Club) where he won several awards for his craft.
Inspired by his passion for discovering exceptional recipes and cooking practices around the world, Oli travels to as many places as he can. One of his favourite trips was going Truffle hunting with the BBC for a T.V show in the Alba region of Italy and also a 3 month round the world food trip with his wife. Today you’ll find implementing all he’s learned and tasted working with restaurants and companies in Montreal and Europe helping to develop their menus and elevate their brands.
And when he’s not gracing kitchens? He’s coaching future generations of talent at Pearson School of Culinary Arts in Montreal.
