the people behind the scenes

WES LEVESQUE

DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS

Wes Lévesque has always had a passion for food and business, making up his mind at 4 years old that one day he would own his own food establishment. At 19 years old with about 5 years of restaurant experience under his young belt, he decided to start a small café and catering company. 13 years later and Wes has evolved past his first few companies and has now founded MJW Hospitality. Sheila’s Catering is one of Wes’ first acquisitions and he plans to stay very hands on, in the company, to continue it’s growth and success. Wes is also a certified nutritionist and starred and hosted his own cooking show on cable television for two years. Through his many years in the Food and Beverage industry Wes has adopted the mantra of doing everything he does the best possible way he can. This has translated into using amazing local and organic ingredients and finessing every aspect of the cooking and serving experience.

BRANT DARLING

EVENT DIRECTOR

Brant Darling has journeyed and worked all over the world and loves fine food and wine culture. Growing up he fondly remembers being front and centre, prepping and cooking away at 5 years old; his grandmother, mom, aunties and the famous D’s clucking away over food, wine and gossip. Brant has worked 20 years in the restaurant industry having served, bartended, managed, and cooked in resorts, hotels and restaurants. Brant has settled in to catering as he loves working special events. He has been with Sheila’s Catering since it’s inception 8 years ago and has ran countless events from weddings, corporate events, private dinners, retirement parties, anniversaries, etc. Even more memorable for Brant are the amazing people he’s had the pleasure to work with and assist over the years. He looks forward to making more memories and meeting more unbelievable people as his journey progresses.

As a result of having Philippino and Hungarian parents Curtis has experienced a large spectrum of ingredients, recipes and customs and has come to appreciate them tremendously. Pursuing this interest had lead him to explore a wide range of other interesting cultures and cuisines. Curtis was a staple at the Washington Avenue Grill having worked there for 9 years and worked his way up to Sous Chef for the last few years.
