About Chef Destiny
Hello & Aanii, my name is Chef Destiny. I am the owner and head chef of a personal chef business called FoodZen as well as the founder and executive chef of Cedar Spoon, an Indigenous catering company. I’m 50% Indigenous, part of the Ojibway tribe from Rainy River, Ontario. My mom was part of the sixties scoop, she was taken from her community when she was 4 years old to live in foster care. When she was 6, she was adopted by a family here in Waterloo Region. For many years we couldn’t celebrate our culture because we didn’t know what to celebrate. My grandmothers taught me how to cook at a very young age, and I could always feel the love in their food. Food has become my path to reconciliation and a way for me to heal, show my emotions and passion. Food is holistic, it’s medicine. One of the best places to listen and learn, is to break bread together and I’m excited to do that with you! Thank you, Miigwetch.
