Ann Yarymowich

Host: Ann Yarymowich

Having served as executive chef at the Art Gallery of Ontario’s vast Food and Beverage operation for 17 years – including the AGO’s renowned FRANK Restaurant which opened in 2009 – Chef Anne Yarymowich recently made the switch to culinary educator at George Brown College, pursuing a career-long dedication to mentoring and shaping a new generation of cooks and chefs.
Born in Montreal, to parents of Ukrainian descent, Anne’s passion for cooking began at an early age. Influenced by her exposure to the French-Canadian traditions and her own ethnic heritage, Anne has incorporated both of these cultures into her culinary repertoire. As a member of Slow Food and supporter of local producers, Anne focuses on all aspects of sustainability, producing a cuisine which she dubs contemporary comfort cuisine.
Anne has earned her stripes as the recipient of a number of accolades, including Chef of the Year, awarded by Ontario Hostelry Institute in 2009 at the annual Gold Awards Ceremony; Winner of the Bronze Medal at the Gold Medal Plates competition in November 2009, competing against nine of Toronto's most respected chefs; and she was named No. 3 in Toronto Life's Top 10 New Restaurants in 2009.
Working with the AGO was a natural fit for Anne, who began with a fine arts degree in visual arts and photography from the University of Ottawa. Deciding to switch from art to a culinary career, Anne graduated from the George Brown College Chef School in May 1989. As one of Toronto's leading chefs, Anne is deeply committed to the concept of mentorship, the practice of apprenticeship and the vocation of teaching, striving to shape a new generation of cooks and chefs with strong principles of sustainability, fair trade and culinary excellence.
