Renowned Toronto Chef Tommy McHugh says he is ready to serve up knowledge – and some great food – for Hospitality & Tourism Management students at the Ted Rogers School of Management (TRSM).

McHugh, who started work as Executive Chef at TRSM Jan. 20, has served as Executive Chef for all seven Il Fornello restaurants and most recently as Executive Chef at STK in Yorkville. He brings 20 years of culinary experience, which will greatly benefit hospitality students and the broader TRSM community.  

He’s worked with Joel Robuchon (voted best chef of the 20th century), was the sous chef at Nota Bene in Toronto, worked with Anton Mosimann (the Royal caterer to HRH Prince Charles) and worked at The Ivy Restaurant the year it was voted #8 restaurant in the world.  

From his experiences in international and multi-concept dining in London, England, to working in Michelin-starred restaurants, five-star hotels and cafés across Europe and Canada – he’s ready to influence the next generation.
