Kaede started his career in London Ontario in 1997. Like many kids who start cooking, he wanted to travel. In 2001, after he finished his formal training, he went to the Canadian rockies to work In Lake Louise and Banff. After 2 solid years there, Kaede traveled to Tokyo to work in an Izakaya. His experiences in Japan shaped his career. The smells, the food, and the sounds of the hustling and bustling city left an indelible mark on him. Since returning to Canada, he has been an Executive Chef in Vancouver, as well as Calgary at the Vintage Chophouse. Currently, he is the Restaurant Chef at the Marriott Calgary Downtown. His proudest moment was winning the Top Mentorship Award from the Alberta Apprenticeship Board.
