Chef Tyler Heath was born and raised in Niagara Falls and has seen the region transform from a simple tourist destination to a booming culinary scene. His journey in the culinary industry began in his hometown. During his time studying at Niagara College, he completed a co-op at a 30-year old institution called Casa Mia Ristorante, where he worked as a prep cook. He feels, however, that he did not really begin to understand what food meant to him until he went abroad. He worked at Treadwell’s as Sous Chef, now in Niagara on the Lake, and also opened a couple of breweries. He later spent some time in Hamilton, Ontario, where he worked at Quatrefoil and Brux House, before landing in St. Catherine’s where he is now Head Chef of Wellington Court. Chef Tyler hopes to bring his own personal touch to this chapter a Wellington Court, where he combines the global influence of his travels and passion for supporting local as best he can.
