David Adjey has been in the restaurant business all his life. He rose from scrappy teen years as a dishwasher in a Scarborough Ontario diner to become Executive Chef at New York City’s tony Rihga Royal Hotel. He’s been Personal Chef to actor Dan Aykroyd, appeared on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno, and realized a dream as Chef Proprietor of his own Toronto fine dining establishment, ‘Nectar.’
In 2008, Chef Adjey embarked on a new path to become a highly sought- after restaurant consultant, a career trajectory that has taken him across North America and beyond to help aspiring restaurateurs create new and profitable businesses founded on their dreams and passion for food.
Along the way, Chef Adjey has established a strong television presence as a chef-expert for the Food Network on such programs as ‘Restaurant Makeover,’ and ‘The Opener,’ which began in 2010.
In 2012 he opened The Chickery, a fast-casual dining experience never seen before in Toronto.
