Chef Terry Port began his culinary career at the popular Asian fusion restaurant in Mississauga, the "Mustard Grille" when he was just 17 years old. The chef Terry worked for, although a notoriously tough boss; taught him a great deal about the industry, cooking, but most of all speed and organization. To Terry's amazement, he fell in love with his new world and never looked back.

When Chef Terry decided this was the path he wanted to pursue, he enrolled at the world renowned “Le Cordon Bleu Cooking School of Paris”, completing their Basic and Advanced Pastry courses, as well as a Sugar (blowing and pulling) course.

Terry then completed his training with a 2 year apprenticeship program at Humber College and received his Red Seal Certification shortly after.

More recently Terry went back to school, this time to get his teaching certificate from the University of Windsor. He continues to teach part-time at Cirillo's Culinary Academy and Culinaria, teaching recreational classes and leading corporate team building events. He also teaches at Centennial College in Markham, educating future chefs on a professional level
