The team of Simply Gourmet!
Serving Calgary and area

Aelie

Executive Chef & Owner, Aelie.

As long as I can remember I have had a passion for food and cooking. Spending time in the kitchen as a child helping my mother cook are some of my earliest memories.

Over the years, I have evolved my cooking techniques, striving to reach an even higher standard. After many years of experimenting with new recipes and cooking for family and friends, in 2008 I decided to take my love of food and build a business. With my passion for cooking and my desire to do what I love...Simply Gourmet was born! 

 

Paige

Executive Chef, Paige. 

I was one of the lucky ones, at the tender age of 5 I already knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. Every day I would come home from school and much to my parent’s surprise I would turn on the food network channel vs teletoons.

I was always interested in what was going on in my Mom’s kitchen so as soon as I was old enough I got my first job in a restaurant.

When I graduated high school I wasted no time in registering at SAIT to obtain my Diploma in Professional Cooking and Certificate in Nutrition for Healthy Lifestyles.

While working at a golf course for my internship I quickly realized my passion in catering events.

It was there that the decision to pursue that avenue vs continuing on at a restaurant was made. I've learned lot working for Simply Gourmet and can't wait to continue evolving as a Chef!

 

New to our team is Sous Chef, Alicia. (Picture pending)

Ever since I was little I always had a passion for cooking. I was lucky enough to have grown up in a household with two awesome cooks, my Mom and my Grandma. 

I always wanted to get into the cooking industry but instead right after high school I went straight into business school where I eventually realized that wasn’t the right career path for me. 

After a couple years I took a leap of faith and joined the culinary program at SAIT. I quickly realized I didn’t want to work in a restaurant and wanted to pursue catering. With that goal in mind I was then lucky enough to find a position with Simply Gourmet.
