Jonathan Goodyear discovered his love for cooking at a very young age. By his mother’s side, he was only too glad to help with any task she delegated. After graduating high school, Jonathan ventured off to Europe where he realized cooking was his calling in life. When he returned from Europe, he enrolled in George Brown College. From there, Jonathan was recommended for a position at The Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto. Since then, he has worked in both Europe and North America, with roles ranging from commis (Eigensinn Farm), tournaut (Four Seasons, Truffles, 5 Diamond) private chef, executive sous chef (Sutton Place Hotel) and most recently executive chef at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club in Toronto. It is with this as his base that he continues to push forward, following his heart and passion.
