Meet Chef Corbin Tomaszeski

Raised on a farm in a rural community outside of Edmonton, Corbin Tomaszeski was born to create and to cook. As a young boy, he watched attentively while his Mother created wonderful meals for his family of six kids. Since then, his ways around the kitchen have grown to helping everybody from those who wish to cook with him to restaurateurs wanting to improve their menus. Catch Chef Corbin in action on popular culinary shows "Dinner Party Wars", "Restaurant Makeover" and "Crash My Kitchen" featured on Food Network and HGTV Canada.

Hailing from Sydney Mines, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, the six MacNeil siblings are deeply rooted in Celtic music, culture, dance, language and history.
