Meet The Chef

Executive Chef Sarah Neagle received her education from George Brown College in Toronto, Ontario. 

Out of culinary school, she began honing her skills at some of the city’s best fine dining institutions such as Luma, George and Auberge du Pommier. After learning the precise technique of fine dining, she decided to educate herself further in the world of event cookery by working for Citizen Catering. Chef Sarah took on her first chef de cuisine roles working in the wilds of Ontario for three years, cooking for various summer camps and exploration companies. She came to the Underground in 2017 to oversee all culinary operations of the Student Center and provide the students, alumni and faculty with a world of flavour that best represents the student body and the city as a whole.

Chef Sarah’s devotion to putting out quality food is only superseded by her desire to share her love of cuisine with others, fostering a great team environment and sharing the knowledge she has accrued throughout her career with her staff.
