Steph Legari is passion on the grill.

Steph the Grilling Gourmet® is a graduate of the prestigious George Brown College Culinary Management Program. Steph has been passionate about cooking gourmet meals since he was a teenager.

Following his dream, he grew to know and understand his craft through preparing and serving delicious meals at many different types of restaurants.

It was somewhere along the way that he discovered his true passion: creating mouthwatering original delights on smokers and grills.

It can be difficult to decide which is more appealing; his energetic and engaging personality or his wondrous delights! Steph loves working his magic at large corporate events and at smaller more specialized group events. He is extremely entertaining and informative as he shares his stories and knowledge of the grill, easy techniques that anyone can use and of course, his always delicious creations.

Steph the Grilling Gourmet® has made mouths water and stomachs growl with impatience all across North America. He is always more than willing to demonstrating his unique and innovative ways of using grills and smokers to capture an almost elemental essence in his creations.

Steph is the genius behind a line of savory dry rubs available commercially which are low in sodium, easy to use and full of amazing flavour!

Since 2008, Steph the Grilling Gourmet® has appeared on TV, radio and large events such as the Big Backyard Show. He is the creator and host of his own show and the popular “Grill This, Smoke That” show seen on cable TV and on the Internet.

Like all true artists, Steph continues his quest to educate himself and share his expertise with his many friends and fans. He has many new and exciting projects in the works. Stay tuned, and “Keep The Fire Hot!”
