Chef Josh Lockrey
Executive Chef

Josh started cooking in 2003 as a prep cook at the fast paced Cara establishment and from then on he had a new respect for any culinary work.  Josh took a huge step and moved from Cara to causal fine dining  to take on the unknown finer points of cooking and flavors.

During this time, Josh had moved schools and took on an apprenticeship under Dan Carpino at TLSS and promptly after that he joined the O.Y.A.P program and had the pleasure of working for Paul Christians and Borden Henson. Josh continued his career working closley with Chef Ian Thompson at 16 Front in Orillia. He learned more from Chef Ian than any chef previous to him because he nurtured healthy practice and made cooking fun. Shortly after leaving Front 16, Josh mastered the art of baking at Patileros Patisserie and left there to become the Sous Chef at Hawk Ridge Golf Club. After a season of being with Hawk Ridge Golf Club, Josh learned that he would be spearheading the Food and Beverage Department and that drove him to get his red seal. As of April 1, 2014, Josh became a red seal chef and the Executive Chef at Hawk Ridge. During the end of 2018, Josh left to pursue  a career in fine dining to further his skills, only to return to Hawk Ridge in April 2019. We are happy to welcome Josh home again.
