Growing up in the Okanagan, Nav was surrounded by an abundance of fresh produce and hard-working passionate farmers inspiring her to enrol in Dubrulle Culinary Institute in Vancouver. Following graduation and after a number of years honing her skills and working in Vancouver restaurants, Nav left the country and found a home at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant Maze in Melbourne, Australia. Missing Canada, she returned to Toronto and worked at the award-winning French-influenced Auberge Du Pommier before returning to the Okanagan as Senior Sous Chef at The Terrace Restaurant at Mission Hill Family Estate.
Nav’s farm to table philosophy and close relationships with local producers became her signature and she moved to Old Vines restaurant at Quails’ Gate Estate Winery as Chef de Cuisine.
Always looking for the next culinary challenge and to expand her skill set, Nav moved to Vancouver to work at internationally recognized Hawksworth in fall 2016 as Head Chef, and later moved into the role of Catering Chef, expanding the catering department of Hawksworth and executing high end events throughout BC and Toronto.
Now based in Montreal, Nav is excited to combine her background and the amazing culinary world around her to you and your events!
