Sebastian Cortez is the owner of Sebastian & Co Fine Meats Ltd. and is a trained professional chef-turned-butcher who once worked for renowned Toronto chef, Jamie Kennedy. Wanting to broaden his knowledge about food, he decided to study the art of butchery. After working as a head butcher in Toronto, Sebastian moved west to settle down and open his own shop in Dundarave Village in 2007.
Sebastian takes his inspiration from the artisan butcher shops of Europe and South America. His passion for food and fine meats is clear the moment you step into his shop. His professional team takes great pains to prepare immaculately frenched racks of lamb, beautifully tied standing rib roasts, and perfect dry-aged steaks that taste even better than they look. With his chef’s background, Sebastian is happy to offer cooking tips or suggest different ways to prepare your favourite cuts of meat.
