I'm Owen.

Ever since I was a child, I loved cooking--especially the part where memories were created as family and friends gathered together. It only made sense that I became a Chef. Now, 30+ years later, I am internationally celebrated for my creativity and culinary innovation, but I can still appreciate how easy it is to fall into a boring food routine because it happened to me. 

This inspired me to create the Quizzical Chef so I could help home cooks like you struggling with the same old cooking routine, take the big leap to cooking the foods they dream of with ease.

"The Quizzical Chef session was beyond my expectations! I have taken many cooking and baking classes in the past as I am a serious foodie who loves to cook. ...we all need a bit of the Quizzical Chef in our lives. I have walked away from this experience with new culinary skills that I will definitely be applying in my day-to-day life. Owen has taught me how to look at food with a new lens and fine-tuning my taste buds to differentiate great from mouthwatering delectable goodness."

"Looking back on the course I am amazed at all the new techniques we have learned. With each module, I learned to cook with new foods and spices and discovered new shopping resources in our community. It was very helpful having you as a resource for shopping + prepping and you were brilliant during the actual meal cooking and so patient with all the questions. These skills, ideas, techniques and feedback can't be found in a book or video. The time investment in your program was well worth it! Thank you for challenging us and encouraging us to push our culinary limits in many ways. It has paid off many times over already. "

"Even though I used to be a pretty good cook, I learned countless new techniques in the Quizzical Chef that make a huge difference to my cooking. Owen say's that it's not the recipe, but the technique that makes the meal. I agree. My food is tasting better across the board. And I've been making dinners that tasted like they were make from a top restaurant. I loved how much fun I had cooking with everyone online."
