Pam Pridham

FEARLESS LEADER

Pam is an avid traveller, soaking up culture by the mouthful - her itineraries dictated by restaurant reservations rather than museum exhibits.

She took on ownership and and assumed her role as president of Dish in May 2009. An accomplished home cook, she has experimented with all types of cuisines, cooking for family and friends.

With her desk situated directly inside the Dish kitchen, she spends her day with her passionate staff, chatting about food and indulging in their culinary creations.

 

 

Gord Pridham

CHIEF TASTING OFFICER

Gord’s favourite meal starts with a plate of heirloom tomatoes from his organic garden finished with volcanic salt and a drizzle of olive oil, then moves on to fresh porcini mushrooms sautéed in a light cream sauce to pair with black cod. And yes, he still has room for dessert.

The consummate globetrotter, Gord looks for inspiration from cutting edge chefs, whose food he seeks out in his regular travels. While not always onsite, Gord brings culinary inspiration to the Dish team from his frequent trips abroad and excels in his role as chief tasting officer.

 

 

 

Jennifer Toft  

GENERAL COORDINATOR

Jen is an important lady at Dish. She coordinates the cooking school and helps look after our café and all it requires. She found her way to Dish four years ago when she started as a barista and quickly realized how much she loved working in a food-filled environment.

Her time at Dish has broadened her culinary repertoire, prompting her to experiment with new cooking techniques and ingredients in her own home. Jen loves to entertain and plan dinner parties for guests; this is probably why she is so good at her job.
