Healthy Hearts Chef Challenge

Chef GEORGE MADALENA
Representing Schlegel Villages at The Cardiac Health - Healthy Hearts Chef Challenge

After excelling at prestigious establishments such as Centro, Four Seasons Toronto and Hockley Valley Resort and Spa, Chef George Madalena has been delighting residents at Schlegel Villages as Chef and Director of Hospitality at The Village of Arbour Trails in Guelph, Ontario. Chef Madalena grew up on a hobby farm in rural Ontario and his love for local, fresh-from-the-garden ingredients has flourished since the time he could see over the countertop of his childhood kitchen. Starting with the philosophy that a great dish starts with a great ingredient and grows around it, the lessons George learned on the farm guide all of his menu creations. This is deliciously reflected in his hands-on involvement with the team at Schlegel Villages and his gentle guidance in the kitchen when coaching fellow chefs and teammates to the delight of all guests and residents.
