Terry Salmond


Terry Salmond is one Waterloo Region’s best loved chefs – and that was before he took us to the very edge of our seats as runner-up of Food Network television’s “Top Chef Canada” in season four. But Salmond is also a culinary entrepreneur who teaches kids cooking and kitchen skills and sells his fabulous “Chow Dumplings” – among other projects that he has in store for the Region.

We asked Salmond a few quick-response questions:

Explore Waterloo Region: Chef you’d most like to meet?
Terry Salmond: Marcus Samuelsson

EWR: Who would you like to cook for most?
TS: My dad.

EWR: Best thing about being a chef?
TS: Once the tough stuff is over, you can pretty much do what you want.

Terry Salmond is the Executive Chef at the recently renovated Walper Hotel in Kitchener. Visit the Walper Hotel to enjoy a delicious meal prepared by Terry, or to take in the culture and charm of this historic, yet contemporary hotel, built in 1893.
