Chef, Pino Di Cerbo

Chief Culinary Officer for Zoglo’s Incredible Plant Based Foods

PINO DI CERBO

Where it all started

Growing up in an Italian home with my mom making every meal from scratch, I guess you can say I picked up a few things! I only realized what those things were when I left my sales career to become a stay-at-home dad. From making baby food to curing meats to preparing gourmet dinners, it was clear – I had a passion, skill and true love of food. That is why when MasterChef came to Canada, everyone who knew me (especially my wife) urged me to audition. That day impacted my life forever.

My MasterChef Canada (MCC) Successes

My audition dish, Antipasto Rustica, won me a spot in the top 50 from over 3,000 applicants. From there, I won various challenges, becoming a fan favourite and finished 6th…. done in by a doughnut!

As a fan favourite, I was invited back for a MCC holiday family special. It was a clean sweep, literally!
A year later, I was back at it for the All-Star Special, winning once again.

2014… the start of my career as a Chef

In my short time as a self-taught Chef, I have truly had amazing experiences. Television appearances, teaching hundreds of cooking classes leading to the start of my own private chef business “Pino Di Cerbo Cucina Rustica”, providing high-end culinary experiences. I also became a food ambassador for Aurora Importing which led to the creation of a series of YouTube cooking videos and promoting the brand in their culinary theatre. I have also had the pleasure of working closely with a local winery, Wolf Sub-Zero (my preferred cooking appliances) and health and wellness institutes advocating healthy meal planning. As a personal chef, I have cooked for high profile families including DeMarre Carroll, an NBA player for the Toronto Raptors during his time here in Toronto. Inspiring young children has always been a passion and my “Kids In The Kitchen” program was a true testament to that. Giving back, I have cooked for countless fundraising events and continue to support charities that are near and dear to my heart. In these new and unprecedented times, I went back to where I started… at home as a home cook. From my kitchen to yours, I created live virtual cooking experiences to all my corporate clients around the globe.

Today…

I am proud to be the Chief Culinary Officer for Zoglo’s Incredible Plant Based Foods. At Zoglo’s, I play a part in something that is bigger than just food. It involves developing quality plant-based products that are sustainable, creating recipes that are Incredible, and sharing with no restrictions… no limits! I have found my home.
