Connie and John

Discussing: Canada Eh? [ Tuesday: 3pm ]

Connie DeSousa and John Jackson (@CHARCUT) are in their fourth year of operation as co-owners and co-executive chefs of CHARCUT Roast House in Calgary, Alberta. DeSousa is one of Canada?s Top Chefs having starred as a finalist in the Food Network culinary competition and a Tourism Calgary Culinary Ambassador. She is known for stand-out butchery skills. Jackson brought San Francisco-style collaboration to the chef community in Calgary, putting his competitive bent aside to pull the profession and the city ahead through informal gatherings to share ideas and raise funds for worthy local causes. He is a powerful voice with civic, business and hospitality organizations advocating for community through food. DeSousa and Jackson are true to time honoured culinary techniques, sustainability and walking the ?toe-to-tail? talk.
