Pam Pridham


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


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  


Jen found her way to Dish when she started as a barista and cooking school host and quickly realized how much she loved working in a food-filled environment. Now as our general coordinator Jen takes care of a lot of things at dish. While she still occasionally dips her toes into the café and hosting, you will usually find her behind the scenes, booking and organizing events, working closely with the School Director, Head Chef and Owner to make the magic happen. If you would like to book an event, inquire about our scheduled classes, or want to find a recipe you tried here 5 years ago, she is your gal!
