Chef Rob Rainford, on 'Cooking Moments'

"Having the pleasure of working beside some of Canada's top chefs in the Cooking Moments kitchen was great! Getting to see the dish from other angles other than your own is fascinating to me. I'll tell you - the charge of energy that you get from that environment is just awesome. Being in the kitchen is a stressful job but getting to work beside your peers is an experience everyone who has the honour of wearing the chef whites gets to have every day in a professional kitchen."

Robert Rainford is a Canadian chef with a world renowned reputation. Born in Saint Andrew Parish, Jamaica November 30, 1966, Rainford moved to Canada with his family when he was three. Rainford enrolled in culinary school at George Brown College in 1994 and after completing his formal training, began his professional career.

After hosting License to Grill seen on Food Network Canada, Discovery Home in the U.S., Asian Food Channel across Asia and now in syndication Rainford has spent the last two years quietly perfecting his signature style "The Rainford Method" and is now preparing to unveil his new brand to the world.

With two new television shows in the works and having just signed a book deal with the Toronto based publishing house Key Porter Books the future looks bright for this talented Chef. "I have just signed on with new management and we seem to be moving pretty fast out of the gate…next will be a new line of sauces which I am working on right now…it's all moving along very well"

Don't be mistaken by Rob's success. Even though he's seen on television around the world on "License To Grill" and has cooked in some of the finest establishments, he feels that as a chef he's "always on a perpetual learning curve", and is humbled by the talent around him. Now an instructor at his Alma Mater George Brown College, he is sharing his knowledge as a world class Chef with the Chefs of tomorrow, Robert L Rainford is beginning to hit his stride and is very thankful for the opportunity to continually uncover the mystery that is food.
