Perrin began his career at George Brown College in Toronto. He expanded his culinary talents by working under distinguished chefs at spots like Est Est Est, a high volume trattoria in Manchester, England, Hanbury Manor in London and North 44, a high-end steakhouse in Toronto. Stephen then went out on his own and became the Executive Chef and owner of four highly successful restaurants in Ontario, Canada – Terra, Sarpa, Rusty’s and Francobollo Posto Italiano.

Stephen’s overall cooking philosophy is to use the best and the freshest ingredients possible, keep it simple, and allow the natural quality of the ingredients to shine.
