Chopped Canada

Meet chef Jessica Pelland #withTownHall

By Leeann Froese Every week for the past couple of years it has been our pleasure to introduce people we encounter and then capture #withTownHall!

This does not mean that we have hired someone new and added them to Town Hall Brands; rather we just connect with so many amazing people that we want to expand networks and introduce them to you, and you to them. This week #withTownHall, we introduce you to Jessica Pelland.

Jessica Pelland

Jessica Pelland is a culinary star, and we are thrilled to know her through her role as a chef in Calgary.

Jessica is the executive chef at Calgary's Charbar, a Prairie & west coast ingredient driven restaurant and bar that has been inspired by wood-fired Argentina cuisine.

Jessica, under 30, is already an award winning Chopped Canada winner, and has been named a Top Foodie in Western Living magazine. She had her first restaurant role straight out of high school, and from 2010, Jessica honed her skills working alongside John Jackson and Connie DeSousa at CHARCUT Roast House as their right hand, before going on to open Charbar in 2015.

She has a reputation for her ambition. She hunts and fishes, and in the kitchen she specializes in whole-animal butchery, curing, grilling, roasting, and working magic with a refined rustic-cooking style. With her love for food, cooking, and discovery, I feel that Jessica is a rising star and I am sure she is just getting started.

With all she does, will you help us welcome Jessica as our featured person #withTownHall this week?
