Sean's experience with All-Clad

When I source the best possible ingredients, I need to be using quality cookware that controls the variables of cooking. All-Clad is a reliable brand that I use in my restaurant to ensure my success.

At only 25, he already has achieved several accolades. Chef MacDonald won the Alberta Regional Competition of the 2015 Hawksworth Young Chef Scholarship.
