Founder

Nikko Jacino, Chef

At twenty-five, Nikko Jacino is rapidly attaining his potential as a culinary professional in Canada’s highly competitive food industry. Nikko’s affinity for hospitality comes naturally, and that’s not altogether a surprise considering his heritage, DNA and childhood environment. A child of Italian roots, Nikko was pervasively surrounded by food. His childhood family home was the center for weekly over-the-top gastronomical dinner parties and celebrations. Time and again, Nikko could be found in the thick of it, found at his parents’ sides ‘helping to cook’.

Today, Nikko works as Executive Chef for BSH Home Appliances. His role is key to helping this award-winning, high-end appliance company exceed annual projections. Here, Nikko guides development and execution of product-knowledge demonstrations, and designs and executes inspired corporate events, private dinners, and catered events for corporate and residential clientele.
