Top Chef Canada season two contestants announced; here are your six Toronto chefs

Ryan Gallagher, 33

Gallagher doesn’t talk much about his culinary experience in his video (though he does give viewers a tour of his house, introduce his pets and admit to being a little worse for the wear after hosting a barbecue the night before), so we’ll fill in the blanks. A former insurance broker, Gallagher trained at George Brown and worked at the Four Seasons under Lynn Crawford. After a variety of other gigs, including a stint as private chef to the Thompson family, he’s now sous-chef at Crawford’s Ruby Watchco.
