Jorge de la Rosa
Growing up in Guadalajara, Mexico, Chef Jorge de la Rosa’s grandmothers provided the blueprint for his craft as a young chef. Looking to hone his skills, he moved to Canada and worked with mentor Luis Valenzuela at Torito Tapas Bar. Initially a dishwasher, he quickly found assured footing as a junior sous chef at several innovative Toronto restaurants, then as executive chef at Playa Cabana in 2013. He later moved on to Vancouver where he worked as a private chef, then returned to Mexico, where he opened his first restaurant and immersed himself into Indigenous Mexican food. Aiming to engage all senses, Chef de la Rosa thrives on traditional Mexican fare for a contemporary palate. Integral to his approach is the simultaneous layering and contrasting of colours, flavors, and textures. @mrdelarosa13
