Chef, Author & Activist
Joshua Maharaj possesses a unique ability to inspire people from both sides of the dining table. She is equally talented a chef as she is a food activist with an authentic goal to improve everyone’s relationship with food. Joshua is unapologetic in her strong belief in chefs and social gastronomy to bring values of hospitality, sustainability and social justice to every dining table. A powerful and engaging speaker, Joshua is a two-time TEDx speaker and oft-sought after voice for business spectrums of all genres. She hosts “Kitchen Helpdesk”, a weekly food column on CBC Radio and also co-hosts “Hot Plate.”
In addition to supporting an array of food driven, community causes, Joshua also dedicates her time to educating post-secondary students and industry peers alike. Joshua has released her first book “Take Back the Tray” (ECW Press) about her work building new models for institutional food procurement, production, and service. The book is a movement to reconnect food with health, wellness, education, and rehabilitation in public institutions around the globe. It is a passionate story about how a chef tried to disrupt the institution in hopes for systemic change.
Trevor has made a life and career surrounded by the sights and sounds of food and drink. He has spent more than 20 years producing thousands of event experiences as an executive for major entertainment venues, top-tier hotels & casinos for the likes of heads of states and Hollywood starlets. A diverse builder of innovative implementation, brand marketing, operations and ground-zero build outs, he likens a good, honest meal on a street corner than being tied down to a corporate boardroom.

His agency Highbell Group curates uniquely immersive culinary events that pushes the boundaries of innovation coupled with a growing list of clients that seek their services for branded video content in the style of his well-documented Soulful Food Stories series.
