Globetrotting with Chef Mike Ward

Around the world with Mike Ward, a chef who has cooked for stars of the screen and of politics. But the true stars in his life are his two daughters.

What do President Clinton, Julia Roberts and Tom Cruise have in common? Well, aside from spectacularly toothy grins, they all have one man in common: Mike Ward. 

Ward is a chef who has cooked for stars of the screen and of politics. But the true stars in his life are his two daughters.

For the Australian-born, Toronto-based chef, travelling allows him to “almost become somebody else.” Says Ward, “it’s easy to leave certain parts of you back home and become a different version of yourself.” In early 2000, he expanded his creativity to include writing, producing and directing award-winning cooking/travel/ lifestyle TV series that have been seen in more than 120 countries. Ward’s insatiable appetite for food and adventure continues to drive him to explore and create.

We caught up with the busy globetrotter in Toronto.
