Paul Lillakas has been working in the food industry for over 13 years across a variety of different venues from catering to restaurants, and finally as a private chef. In 2014, Paul was a winner of Food Network Canada’s Chopped Canada and went on to be the personal chef to six-time Grammy award-nominated Canadian music producer Deadmau5. Paul was formerly the owner of FoodStyles Catering, specializing in custom tasting menus for private events. He also held positions as RecipeContent Specialist for Loblaws and as the Culinary Lead at Kraft Heinz Canada. Paul specializes in global cuisine, mashing up flavours from around the world and reenvisioning classics to give them a modern flair. His favourite dish is — and likely always will be — caesar salad. His guilty pleasure is having the house to himself and polishing off an entire bag of ketchup chips while watching old episodes of The Simpsons.
