Our Chef

Rita Soares-Kern

I'm from the Azores (Portugal) and I immigrated to Montreal at a very young age. I Grew up in a multi etchnic community which initiated my curiousity in the diversity of taste. As a self-taught chef, I've brought 20 years of culinary experience to Omi. I've been a chef-in-residence for the Omi Writers's Residency since 2003.This came with a challenge of dietary restrictions which brought new culinary attributes. I also worked for 10 years with the previous Carlucci Catering Co. preparing very large events - weddings, fund raisers, and family parties in Columbia County. I also run my own in-home, private chef service called The Wooden Spoon. My background in art comes out in the presentation of my food.
