Growing up, Thea was blessed with the chance to travel around the world and encountered a variety of amazing foods and cultures. From curry in the remote islands of the Philippines to Michelin Star restaurants, every happy moment and experience has included food.
Thea's Fierce optimism and flavourful talent landed her the "Top 2" spot on MasterChef Canada. Her N'duja ricotta tortellini made it on the menu of Jamie Oliver's restaurant, Jamie Italian, and gained a lot of publicity. Though the Queen of Flavour walked away without the title she knows that when one door closes a few more open.
Since then, she has appeared on both Canadian and American television, acted as a National campaign spokesperson for major lifestyle chains, launched Théasty, and served as a brand ambassador for a wide range of food and home brands. She is a regular food and lifestyle expert on Canadian networks and continues to prove that second place isn't that bad.
What started as an interest in food criticism turned into a global pursuit to taste, travel and showcase the best national and international restaurants and recipes while sharing some of her favorite lifestyle tips.
Whether it be Food, Home, or Travel, it will certainly be Théasty.
