About Roger Mooking

Roger Mooking has earned a reputation as one of Canada’s premier chefs by developing a culinary philosophy built on the perfect execution of globally inspired culinary traditions. As a third-generation restaurateur and chef, he began his formal training through the George Brown Culinary Management Program where he earned Top Student Honors. Roger continued his training at Epic Dining Room in Toronto’s world-renowned Royal York Hotel before co-owning and consulting on many food and beverage operations. Since that time, he has been the subject of numerous television and print features internationally and nationally, including Food Network, HGTV, the New York Times, Wallpaper magazine and Toronto Life. Currently, Roger is the host and cocreator of his own internationally broadcast television series, Everyday Exotic. He is also the co-host of the hit show Heat Seekers, which airs on Food Network. To add to his filling plate, Roger’s highly anticipated first cookbook, Everyday Exotic: The Cookbook, hit shelves in 2011. The cookbook quickly snagged reviewers' attention, winning the prestigious Best First Book Award for Canada in the annual Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. In addition, he is the recording artist and creator of Soul Food, a unique food and music project released by Warner Music. For Roger, music and the epicurean world are seamless. One feeds the body, the other the soul; it is all food in one form or another.
