Toronto is strengthening its reputation for fine seafood, thanks to chefs like Michael Steh. Growing up in Oshawa, Ont., the young chef started cooking at Slovenian banquet halls with his mom and canning his own fruit and vegetables at home. But, since moving to Toronto, and graduating from George Brown College, the chef has helmed the kitchens of some of the city’s most celebrated restaurants, including Canoe and Splendido, and recently, SIR Corp.’s Reds Wine Tavern. For the past year, the 36-year-old has been the executive chef at a growing network of seafood restaurants by Toronto’s Chase Hospitality Group, including The Chase, The Chase Fish & Oyster and the soon-to-open Little Fin. He’s setting higher seafood standards while respecting his ingredients.
