It is there that he also teaches a variety of grilling classes open to the pubic and also available for corporate/team-building events and special occasions.

Chef Clive’s enthusiastic approach to food is only surpassed by his passion for grilling. His first experience using a Weber grill was with the portable Weber Q and there was no looking back. An avid griller, he now enjoys grilling year-round on a wide assortment of Weber gas and charcoal grills and smokers.

Michael is also known for picking up the bass guitar and throwing some extreme tailgating parties during football and basketball seasons.

Grill Specialist - Damien Chong

What started off as a hobby in the kitchen transformed into a passion for cooking and a fascination for the culinary world. Following his graduation from the Culinary Management program at George Brown College in Toronto, Chef Damien Chong went on to work in the kitchens of some of Toronto’s top, internationally acclaimed chefs.

It was in 2014 when Chef Damien Chong found a new lease on his professional trajectory when he joined the Weber Grill Academy in Vaughan, Ontario. It was in this unique indoor grilling school that he was able to learn about the fascinating world of grilling using gas and charcoal grills and smokers. Since then, Chef Chong has been a driving force in the Grill Academy, helping teach hundreds of students through a variety of classes how to take their grill skills to the next level.

When Damien isn’t busy in the Grill Academy his thirst for learning is often satisfied with global travels abroad to different corners of the world in search of new flavours and cooking techniques.
