Executive Chef

We are so lucky to have Chef Ernesto!

He is a Chef with over 10 years’ experience, and has had such high-profile clients as Yoko Ono, The Chinese Ambassador to Canada and Justin Trudeau. He specializes in Fine Dining and Latin cuisine, so you’ll definitely be treated to elements of that at SOB.

Previous to SOB Ernesto was the head Chef at an upscale Spanish Tapas restaurant and had worked as the Head Chef for a catering company putting on ‘swanky’ events.

From: Tabasco, Mexico

Why Canada?

I’ve been Canada for 6 years, I came from Mexico straight to Toronto to take a head Chef position. Our family decided to make the switch to Alberta after 6 years of living in Toronto because we wanted a change of pace and a different lifestyle for our girls to grow up.

I’ve been married for 11 years to my beautiful wife Elouisa. We have two girls age 9 and 11. We really enjoy hiking, and fishing together as a family.

Something we would never guess about you:
I am ordained! But also...

I love experimenting behind the bar and in my kitchen with different flavour profiles! I started cooking at the age of 7 and have been in love ever since. If I am not at SOB I am cooking at home or enjoying the outdoors!

My favourite thing about SOB is being apart of a LOCAL team with the ability to create a direct line to the community offering a finer dining experience with a home style advantage. …Oh, and the pasta!

Definitely the pizza, the homemade sauce is amazing.
