Chef Dustin Gallagher has always enjoyed cooking, working his way up the ladder in professional kitchens from the age of 13. At the age of 22 he joined Chef Susur Lee’s team at his internationally acclaimed restaurant, Susur, where he worked for six years, eventually becoming sous chef.
Dustin then went on to become Executive Chef at the Toronto restaurant, Grace. In its opening year in 2009, Grace was featured in Toronto Life’s top ten best new restaurants. The same year, Dustin himself was the recipient of the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo’s Nine of Dine Award as one of Toronto’s best new chefs.
