About your Instructor;
Nature’s Chef, Tom Kral
Over 25 years of professional cooking experience (and a bloodline of cooks) has evolved Tom Kral into Nature’s Chef. As a child growing up in a Czech deli, Tom spent time at the family cottage where camping and foraging played an important role in his life. This experience allowed him to develop a deep connection with nature & food.
Following his passion for cooking, it led him down a path of being trained by some of the worlds best chefs, then to owner of a renowned restaurant and catering business in the bustling city of Toronto. After experiencing chef burn out and an awakening, he followed his heart west. His irresistible call for the wild lead him to settle in Sooke, Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada to steward the land of Elemental Collective.
Tom shares his culinary knowledge through private dining experiences, culinary adventures, workshops, retreats. He also collaborates with other facilitators.
Acknowledging that he lives and works on unceded Coast Salish Territories, specifically T’Sou-ke nation.
