The Culinary Mastermind

John Griggs

John Griggs

Executive Chef

From a young age I have always had a passion for food and cooking. Whenever we had family gatherings the focus was always surrounded by food and enjoyment, so my profession was both a natural and perfect fit. I fondly remember my uncle, who was also a chef, once told me: “If you have a passion for what you do, the world is your oyster, and the sky is the limit.” Knowing what he had accomplished during his personal and working life, I knew then my destiny was to become a professional Chef. Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, I took my first restaurant job at The Keg Steakhouse at the age of 15. From there I moved around within the culinary industry gaining over 30 years of experience in restaurants, resorts, hotels and private clubs. A special highlight of those 30 years was my time spent working and living in the Cayman Islands, where I was Executive Chef for a five-star resort as well as Chef and Owner of Azzurro, a restaurant and catering company on the island. Throughout those seven years as owner, I was provided the opportunity to experiment with flavours and really refine my culinary expertise. Formally I was classically trained with a broad range of cuisine including French, Italian, Caribbean, Asian and South American. My passion for travel allowed me to experience many cultures and cuisines which is showcased still through menu creation. It is my pleasure to bring my life experience and passion for food to The Royal Ashburn Golf Club. By my side at Royal Ashburn, the Culinary team includes Chef Dave Mason and Chef Jason Sherwin who bring a wealth of diversity and passion for creating extraordinary menu selections. We all have a strong passion for food and enjoy sharing our creations for all to enjoy. To quote Wolfgang Puck “Live Love Eat.”
