Mr. Personality, Jonathan Korecki was always the guy at the BBQ in high school. Feeling that he was born to cook but worried that it wasn’t a good career, he went to university. Three weeks was all it took to confirm his instincts. He dropped out, enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa and never looked back. Eventually, Jonathan left Ottawa for the larger market of Toronto. After personally dropping off 40 resumes, he landed a position at Susur describing it as both the most trying experience and most important experience of his life. Now back in Ottawa as the chef of Sidedoor Contemporary Kitchen and Bar, Jonathan says the intensity he felt at Susur is back. He describes himself as ruling with an iron fist and a velvet curtain., When his long day of cooking is over, Jonathan, who is married to a neuroscientist, escapes to his basement silk-screening business – ‘mise en gear,’ which creates one-of-a-kind chef bandanas.
