    The Grove Pub & Restaurant

    Chef Kristel Pastorin is a Red River College culinary graduate and restaurant chef. She started her career at St. Charles Country Club as a student and trained under the esteemed and highly regarded Master Chef Takashi Murakami where she learned how to be highly disciplined, creative and resourceful.
    Her next chapter began by opening a new restaurant called Sydney’s Fine Dining at The Forks, where she was hired as the executive pastry chef. After eight years of pastry and fine dining, she then moved on to The Grove Pub & Restaurant and took over as the executive chef.
    Kristel, husband Chef Norm Pastorin and their partners are now owners and operators of five restaurants – The Grove Pub & Restaurant, The Cornerstone Bar & Restaurant, The Black Bird Brasserie, The Canteen on Stafford, and The Canteen on Tache. Kristel and Norm juggle all of these businesses as well as two children who are 12 and 10 years of age.
    Kristel also contributes to several charity events throughout the year that keep her busy. Although her time and attention are stretched thin, Kristel has never lost her enthusiasm and passion for the culinary industry.
