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, Damien Chong went on to work in the kitchens of some of Toronto’s top, internationally acclaimed chefs.
It was in 2014 when Damien 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, Damien has been a driving force in the Grill Academy, helping teach hundreds of students through a variety of classes on how to take their grill skills to the next level.
When Damien isn’t busy in the Grill Academy, as one of only two Weber Grill Masters in Canada, 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.
