Chef Hayden Johnston, Richmond Station, Toronto
Saturday, March 10, 2018

Born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Hayden’s appreciation for food and drink came naturally. Growing up hunting, fishing, foraging and feasting gave the 28-year-old Culinary Institute of Canada graduate an appreciation for great food and personable hospitality.

At the age of 15, Hayden’s first foray into professional cooking came in the form of a dishwashing job (a position he thinks every good cook should master). After graduating high school and while studying at the CIC, Hayden seized an opportunity to work at Petraia Agritourismo, in Tuscany, Italy, under chef and author Susan Mckenna Grant, and at Machelleria Cecchinni, also in Tuscany, under famed Italian butcher Dario Cecchinni.  After graduating from the CIC, Hayden made it his goal to travel while cooking, and began by working aboard the Antarctic expedition ship Akademik Ioffe. After his stint at the bottom of the world, Hayden spent time working at Treadwell Cuisine in the Niagara Region, Bistro Vue in Melbourne, Australia, Blue Hill in New York City, Husk Restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina, and Parts and Labour  in Toronto. Hayden has been working with Carl and Ryan since 2010, when the team was at Marben Restaurant.

Hayden has found competitive cooking quite rewarding as well. He won an episode of Chopped Canada in 2013, was runner up twice at the San Pellegrino Young Chef competition, and a finalist for the Hawksworth Scholarship.

Hayden’s technique-driven and ingredient-focused style of cooking has been influenced by the teachings of some of the most profiled farm to table chefs and authors.  He believes that success in cuisine is the combination of great relationships and great ingredients.
