TORONTO — After four years of hard work, Tobias MacDonald has become the second chef to receive Canada’s highest culinary designation: Certified Master Chef (CMC).
To achieve this status, MacDonald had to complete the seven-course, CMC program administered by the Canadian Culinary Institute, which include Garde manger theory, Vegetarian, Nutrition and Food Allergies and Food Styling and Presentation.
Having completed the last of the program’s practical examinations at the Canadian Centre of Culinary Arts & Science at Humber College, MacDonald added another achievement to his already impressive resume. Besides this most recent addition, his résumé boasts gold medal wins as Culinary Team Canada’s Captain and in the World Culinary Cup.
With this new certification, MacDonald has joined Judson Simpson, Canada’s first CMC, among the ranks of what is currently an exclusive club.
