JEFF CLAUDIO
YOURS TRULY

Jeff Claudio was schooled at Per Se in New York, Rockpool in Sydney and Noma in Copenhagen—three of the finest restaurants in the world. Not too shabby for a 29-year-old who fell into his profession by chance. His first career ambition was to be a pro golfer. His first food job was in a golf course kitchen at age 17. Cooking won over sport. At Yours Truly—the Ossington room Toronto Life dubbed best new restaurant of 2011—Claudio develops high-concept dishes, such as these Sriracha-tinged devilled eggs.
