About Chef Paul Rogalski

Paul Rogalski is a renowned and passionate gastronomic leader and artist who finds his inspiration in locally sourced ingredients, the natural environment and collaborations with the great people he works with and learns from every day.

His culinary career has taken him to Singapore, Malaysia, Grand Cayman, Scotland, the United States and all across Canada, where he has amassed deep culinary experiences and great relationships. Among his many adventures, Paul is the Culinary Director & Co-Owner of Rouge Restaurant, Calgary where he led the vision and kitchen team to achieve the prestigious ranking as one of the San Pellegrino’s World’s 50 Best Restaurants.

With his inner-city garden inspired restaurant, Paul helped define farm to table in Calgary and beyond, focusing on creating exceptional culinary experiences using fresh, garden and local, ingredients.  Today, Rouge remains atop ranked Canadian restaurant and Chef Rogalski remains a culinary adventurer at home and abroad.

Most recently, Paul can be seen starring in Les Stroud’s Wild Harvest, a television series that explores the natural landscapes across North America with Survivorman’s Les Stroud.  In each location, Les forages up native ingredients that Paul must turn into culinary delights using his creativity and mastery of cooking.  With each location comes new ingredients, breathtaking scenery, and a deep appreciation of the natural environment.
