About Chef Kevin Ramasawmy
From the young age of four, Kevin Ramasawmy has had a distinct curiosity for cooking. Whether he was flipping omelettes and making curries with his mother, or tagging along with his father at the hotel and restaurant where he worked, Kevin’s life revolved around cooking, hospitality, and – best of all – eating.
In 2004, at the age of 19, Kevin moved from Mauritius to Montreal. He fell in love with the city and his future wife, and was compelled to stay and make a living. Although he started out in front of house, working from busboy to waiter to manager, Kevin decided to make the leap into cooking when he was offered a Garde Manger position with Chef Jeff Stirrup.
In 2011, Chef Kevin moved to Toronto to work as Saucier under Chef Anthony Walsh at Canoe Restaurant & Bar. Chef Walsh quickly became a mentor, and changed the way Chef Kevin interpreted Canadian fine dining. Following another stint at Splendido working with Chef Victor Barry, he upped the ante by moving to New York City for the role of Tournant at Daniel. There, he embraced brand new challenges and constant intensity. He was inspired by Chef de Cuisine Eddy Leroux and Executive Chef Jean-François Bruel, as well as Chef Daniel Boulud himself, to think big. Upon returning to Montreal, Chef Kevin continued to cook and perfect his craft at Maison Boulud at the Ritz-Carlton.
In early 2017, Chef Kevin reunited with mentor Chef Anthony Walsh to open Bar George at Le Mount Stephen. Since then, he has been instrumental in leading the kitchen brigade and earning Bar George both local and international acclaim.
In 2021, Chef Kevin’s role expanded to oversee culinary operations at Bar George, Le Mount Stephen and Le Westin Mont Tremblant. Driven by an innate desire to connect with people through food, Chef Kevin looks forward to cooking playful, eclectic cuisine for his guests for years to come.
