Who knows where talent comes from? Is it nature or nurture, innate or learned? For Rob Rainford it just feels as though he was "Born to Grill"™. He has always loved cooking and the mysteries that unravel when working with various foods and cultural themes; his one consistent theme has always been his love for the grill.
Rob Rainford is a Canadian chef with a world renowned reputation. Born in Saint Andrew Parish, Jamaica on November 30, 1966, Rainford moved to Canada with his family when he was three. Rainford enrolled in culinary school at George Brown College in 1994 and after completing his formal training, began his professional career.
After hosting Licence to Grill seen on Food Network Canada, Discovery Home in the U.S., Asian Food Channel across Asia and now in syndication, Rainford has spent the last two years quietly perfecting his signature style "The Rainford Method" and is now preparing to unveil his new brand to the world.
With two new television shows in the works and having just signed a book deal with the Toronto based publishing house Key Porter Books the future looks bright for this talented Chef. "I have just signed on with new management and we seem to be moving pretty fast out of the gate…next will be a new line of sauces which I am working on right now…it's all moving along very well," says Rainford.
Don't be mistaken by Rainford's success. Even though he's seen on television around the world and has cooked in some of the finest establishments, he feels that as a chef he's "always on a perpetual learning curve", and is humbled by the talent around him. Now an instructor at his Alma Mater George Brown College, he is sharing his knowledge as a world class Chef with the Chef's of tomorrow. Rainford is beginning to hit his stride and is very thankful for the opportunity to continually uncover the mystery that is food.
