Chef de Cuisine, Bannock, Miheer Shete
Chef Miheer Shete discovered his love of food and cooking as a young teen growing up in Mumbai, India. His passion for the culinary arts and curiosity about different cultures and cuisines has led to an illustrious career as a globe-trotting chef, cooking his way around the world.
Receiving his degree in Hospitality Management from Kohinoor-IMI (Switzerland), Chef Miheer has worked under French master chef Jose Gutierrez, and has cooked at Michelin-starred Chapter Restaurant (London, UK). Upon making the move to Canada in 2010, Chef Miheer took on the role of Sous Chef at Paese Ristorante. During his tenure with the restaurant, he impressed with his skill, knowledge, and flair for international flavours, working his way through the ranks to become Chef de Cuisine.
It was this talent and panache that attracted the attention of O&B’s Corporate Executive Chef Anthony Walsh, who recognized Chef Miheer’s ability to create unique and contemporary Canadian comfort food inspired by and reminiscent of a myriad of global influences. Appointed Chef de Cuisine of Bannock in 2014, Chef Miheer infuses international flavours and techniques to create whimsical Canadian comfort food, reflective of the heart and soul of Canada.
