Chef Joseph Wood

Joseph Wood began his culinary career in the pit of the famous Sherwood restaurant in Brantford, Ontario. After many years of experience working the line of various Ontario restaurants, Joseph found himself out west working under talented chefs for Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts. Working with menus influenced by European Mountain guides, he gained valuable knowledge on many different styles of cuisine, including game meats.

With a new found passion, Joseph ventured to Australia to gain further knowledge and experience while working at Kooringa Resort and Pier Nine restaurant. Cooking alongside talented chefs, he was preparing modern style Mediterranean dishes while still preserving the British style of pork and lamb dishes.

Back in Canada, Joseph accepted a position with the award winning culinary team at Fox Harb’r in Nova Scotia where he furthered his passion and experience until moving back to Ontario and accepting the Chef’s Position at Dependence Agro Resort.

Joseph inspires to bring his wealth of knowledge gained from his experience to the guests and tables at Dependence Agro Resort.
