ABOUT THE CHEF 
Chef Scott Sanderson’s cooking is rooted in classic and contemporary traditions. The tenets of the culinary canon are the hallmarks of his cooking —  prepared from scratch with quality ingredients and skill. Bitten by the ‘cooking bug’ at a young age, Sanderson found his first job at 15, working in a bakery in Kitchener, Ontario. Sanderson’s formal culinary studies were at Fanshawe College in the Culinary Program.  Sanderson then thrived as an apprentice under Chef Steve James at the renowned Glenmore Dining Room in the London Hunt and Country Club. Sanderson left the Hunt Club after 4 years for a position at 45-seat Cedar House Restaurant in Golden, British Columbia. The cuisine at the Cedar House featured a farm-to-table ideology of local and organic foods including sustainable seafood, natural and antibiotic free meats, grains and pulses. The Cedar House has been consistently awarded one of the “Top 50 Places to Eat in Canada” for 12 consecutive years by the National Restaurant Guide. Sanderson was next employed as Executive Chef at the 75-seat La Casa Ristorante in London, Ontario for 8 years. Under Sanderson’s guidance celebrated signature dishes were masterworks, carrying on the venerable restaurant’s 20 year tradition of consistent excellence. Sanderson spent the last year as head chef of the iconic and authentically Italian, Bertoldi’s Trattoria on London, Ontario’s Richmond Row before returning to British Columbia. Tradition tempered with innovation is the hallmark of Sanderson’s culinary repetoire.

Mr. David Beaudoin
Born and raised in Québec City, David Beaudoin has always been a cheese lover. As a young man, he travelled the world while working as an entertainer on Cruise Ships, this enabled David to taste cheeses from around the globe. David moved to the Okanagan in 2005, where he turned his passion for cheese into an enterprise and launched his Squeaky Cheese TM.

After 5 years of successfully building his Squeaky Cheese business, David decided to take on the lead role for one of the oldest Cheese Factory in British Columbia. During the next five years, working and learning with one of the country’s cheese masters, his knowledge and passion for cheese reached a whole new level. With a thorough understanding of the industry, he now shares his knowledge and enthusiasm for making, tasting and enjoying cheeses of all kinds. Dubbed ‘The Cheese Poet’ and known locally as ‘The Squeaky Cheese Guy,’ he also works as a cheese expert and consultant with Dairy Farmers of Canada, as well as cheese educator for many of Canada’s largest grocery chains.

David is proud to be Canadian, and he will sure make you realize that Canada produces world-class cheese. Come meet David, and taste for yourself!
