BIO: Celebrity Chef Lora Kirk is one of Canada’s foremost culinary authorities who has over 14 years of international culinary experience. A native of Peterborough, Ontario, Lora says she was greatly influenced by working on her grandparent’s farm, as it is here she learnt the importance of supporting local farmers and growers. This mantra is still reflected in her cooking style today, as she utilizes fresh, locally grown ingredients in her dishes.
Lora Kirk always had the dream of being a professional chef. She began her culinary career at the Algonquin College culinary program, and after graduation moved to London, England.

Additionally, she was afforded the honor of cooking at the James Beard House and in Kitchen Stadium on Iron Chef America in New York City.
Next, Chef Kirk decided to move to New York City in attempts to further her culinary career. She took a position at Manhattan’s Allen and Delancy Restaurant as Chef de Cuisine with Neil Ferguson. She received the Top 10 New Restaurants award in the New York Times and a very prestigious Michelin Star for her talents. Chef Kirk went on to run the kitchens at the SOHO House in New York.
